Ambassadors South Africa were able to train 20+ football coaches in Maputo during June and 20+ football coaches in Jeffreys Bay, South Africa during July. The funds enabled us to buy 40 balls and take them to Maputo for the training and for the coaches to use afterwards. I also bought 20 balls for JBay and left 10 for the coaches to use.

These community coaches were trained to be father figures and whole-life coaches in their communities. We ended each training with a community clinic to reach out to the local community. In total, we had three coaches really commit to the mission, and two make re-commitments. We could impact deeply into their own father’s wounds and help them move towards healing.

Ball Project is thankful to our partners in South Africa & around the world working faithfully to train coaches, build communities & help children play.

Here is an update on Coaches On The Move, an innovative new program, from one of our Ball Project Partners in Uganda:

Coaches on the Move
Due to the number of coaches that we have trained over the years. We planned activities that we would do together to as a team in communities around the country.
So every quarter we organize a big community outreach where we train, coach and support local teams with some resources.

Coaches On The Move is a new program we launched where Coaches do soccer outreaches and trainings in communities with youth and teams. We give the best practices and train coaches in how to handle players. We have seen an overwhelming response to this program.

Thanks to Ball Project for the resources to make this dream a reality.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners around the world working hard & being creative to impact their communities & countries to help children play.

Here is an encouraging update from our South African partner Ambassadors Football:

We work towards fueling a movement of coaches as parental figures and mentors. We work to address lack of stable homes and proper parenting through football.

To do this we designed a holistic coaches development process, where we invest life in a handful of mentor coaches, who in turn invest their lives into a handful of coaches, who in turn… This start a movement of coaches mentoring coaches, who then mentor coaches. In this movement players have a stable parental figure (in the male or female coach) and are being mentored. This in turn impacts the family of the player. We focus on this holistic coaches development process over 2-4 years. Investing into the coach through the mentor making strategy in partnership with other organizations and churches working with and encouraging young people.

Thank you for this partnership that enables of to buy equipment for the training of the coaches, that they then use afterwards for their impacting the players.
