In the midst of the Covid-19 Crisis, here is an encouraging update from one of our partners in Haiti:

Even before the COVID-19 crisis, there was a political and economic crisis in Haiti.

This has disrupted many things, but SportQuest partner, TF, has remained committed to leading his sports academy and training up whole-life leaders through soccer and basketball. He also has created a WhatsApp group for 100+ soccer coaches who are developing their players holistically.

When possible, he provides training and equipment for them to use in their communities.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners being creative & working hard to build their coaches & kids & communities to help children play.

Here is an encouraging update from Admirals, one of our partners in Moldova:

As a basketball academy we see the need in sharing values in the world of sport. We want our players to have growing relationships with team members and in faith. We started a character study for them, in a year it grew up and now we are having 25 players, coaches, members of the family who are joining this group every Thursday.

It is a big joy for us to see how older players are coaching youngest ones and sharing lessons and stories with them on the daily basis.

Currently we have 5 teams of boys and girls of different ages who are coached every day!

Ball Project provided $300 recently for us to purchase basketball, volleyballs, and soccer balls for a community sports camp here in Albuquerque. This was the first major project that our local community sports team has attempted, and it went really well!

We did a 3-day sports camp for around 35 kids in the International District, a neighborhood in Albuquerque synonymous with crime, poverty, gang activity, and hopelessness. We partnered together with a local Hispanic church, an after school program, a local basketball coach, and SportQuest.

Together we were able to provide an excellent experience for these kids that was fun, that helped them play and be active, and that gave them hope. Each day we focused on a specific word: Passion, Perseverance, and Purpose, and we shared a faith story. The kids loved it, and many of them will stay involved with our local organizations and opportunities (church, after school program, basketball skill development, etc.).

This event was such an encouragement to our team, and now we are dreaming about the next step in the development of our team as well as in serving this community. A huge thanks to Ball Project for providing the sports equipment for this project! That was a great blessing and encouragement to us!
