Here is an amazing update from one of our partners in Nigeria:

In our community impact projects, soccer balls have been our most used tool to access sometimes difficult and restricted communities in rural Africa. For you to access, engage and be accepted by any community, they would want to feel the pulse of your heart; are you doing what you do for any personal gain? Over the years, we have learnt that love speaks to even stony hearts.

Through the platform of Dreams-Alive Project, we have been able to inspire and give expression to the dream of every child i.e. To Play, Learn and Grow.

In a community in Northern Nigeria where the people are in the process of rebuilding their lives and community after the destruction by terrorists, we are working with some community leaders to bring about relief to help remedy their pain. Our core intervention is using sports to engage with the children. The children for over 4 years have not had the opportunity to play any sports as their lives has been revolving around running from place to another. They have soccer balls to play with and we were told how they are experiencing gradual integration back into their community.

Through Ball Project, we have seen our scope expanding to other West African countries: Ghana, Gambia, Togo, Sierra Leone and Niger Republic.

Here is a short update from one of our partners in Nigeria:

Please, kindly find the attached photo of street kids in Gambia playing football with Ball Project balls.

I gave the balls on my recent visit to Gambia to encourage sports growth and development among indigenous Gambians.

Thanks for helping to make this happen.
