In Nepal, we have been using the Ball Project resources for training football coaches, giving the coaches the balls after the training, community sports programs and also in football tournaments between churches and other groups.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners in Nepal & around the world working to positively impact communities & help children play.

Here is an encouraging & humbling update from one of our partners in Bolivia:

I started football training for kids from an organization that works with prostitutes and their children. We train the children once a week. Kids and teens from 7 to 16 years old. We divide them into 2 groups. From 7 to 11 years old and from 12 to 16 years old.

In another program we do football trainings young people in Reintegration Centers for women and men. Young people who are under 18 years old and cannot go to prison because of their age. We also are going to prison for young people from 18 to 25 years old. In the future we plan are looking for permission to go to the orphanages to train the kids and teens.

Ball Project constantly amazed by & always thankful for our wonderful partners around the world working to reach people from challenging situations to encourage people, build communities & help children play.

Here is an encouraging update from one of our partners in Angola:

We work with football in 5 locations, the number of children has increased to 300+. We meet daily because of coaching for life with two team U13 and U15.

We started competition on provincial level, we had our first federation. The challenge is bigger the requirements are very high.

During their historic first game, the boys were very nervous on the field. Playing for the first time in a stadium was a new reality.

Yes! We need more balls and other equipment, like cleats, shin guards, soccer socks, jerseys and other equipment!
