On behalf of our team in Nepal, I would sincerely like to thank you for the partnership you have provided for our team. Previously, your support had opened many new opportunities for our young children as well as help developed their sports skills and character. Your contribution had enabled many children and youths to participate in many distinguished tournaments, leadership seminars and training, and these events had broaden their discipline and character on and off the field, which is invaluable to their future endeavors. Besides, your contribution was also used to purchase soccer balls and organizing soccer training for the children of rural area and unprivileged children of Nepal.

Our leadership committee has extended a heart-felt thank you for your contribution and commitment for our Sports Complex. As we continue to grow as a sports organization your partnership and counsel are vital for us and for Nepal. As you are aware we are growing day by day and have been doing lots of sports events and trainings like Football (soccer) training, Basketball training, Major Sports Events, leadership trainings, counseling, sports material publication and many more. It has served different churches, communities, schools, colleges, local clubs, organizations and many other sports council in national and international level.

As always we are very grateful to be able to do our small part. & as always, we are grateful for our amazing partners in every corner of the world helping kids by helping kids play.

Here is an example from Bangladesh of the kind of work our international Ball Project partners do on an ongoing basis.

<><><><><>

In Bangladesh we work with the Government, schools & children, youth & adult programs.

Here in Bangladesh we are working regularly 3 times a week with local schools specially located at village areas where the resources in various aspects are very scarce. We are attending two schools (one for boys and another for girls) each with 40 students and usually we do a tournament every year within the schools we’ve been working during all year.

Last weekend we had a “Friendly” tournament of football for boys at a village area with participation of four schools, and we had a great time with the community. At the end of the tournament we could provide each school 5 footballs and the host school that got 10 footballs. That was possible because of the support grant and resources we got from Ball project.

In every school we go with our program, we provide a training module on basic football for the physical teacher that usually is with us during the trainings sessions with kids.

Thanks a lot for your partnership and support that makes it possible for us to provide these poor village schools to have a basic sport material for their kids to have a time of fun practicing the sport they love, football.

Unfortunately I couldn’t upload some pictures due to our internet connection with very low speed.

We are grateful for our partners & their work to help their communities & their commitment to help children by helping children play.

 

Ball Project works with several sports leadership schools around the world.

At a sports leadership school, individuals learn to develop sports programs that can benefit their communities & young people through exercise & development of personal character & leadership skills.

Ball Project sponsors a ball for each graduate so they are able to go home & immediately put into practice the principals & skills they have learned at the school.

The sooner they can practically help kids by helping kids play the better.

Here is an update from Guatemala about what can start from 1 volleyball.

Ball Project at the Reintegration Center for youth is run weekly, on Thursdays from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.

Volleyball and the reading of an inspirational leadership book. The director accepted the idea happily. This project started with one ball, the volleyball I received for my project plan at the sports school in South Africa.

About 145 boys come each week.

We are very grateful for our partners around the world & how they help kids by helping kids play.
