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

Amigos de la Aldea is a Guatemalan organization, which originally focused on Rural Development in projects on solar energy, clean cook stoves and water filtration. More recently, ADLA has focused on the education and development of girls in rural communities. We believe that educated rural women play a key role in supporting their households and communities in achieving food and nutrition security, generating income, and improving rural livelihoods and overall well-being. As moms, they can foster Christian values, principles and traditions that keep our societies strong.

We are now supporting and providing scholarships to 120 girls based in Jalapa (eastern Guatemala) and looking to open another support project in Esquipulas in northeast Guatemala.

Since 2009 we have given over 750 full scholarships to rural children that include tuition, teachers, curriculum, books, supplies, backpacks and uniforms. We have also donated computer equipment and other facilities to improve education. We also have supported them with sports supplies and playground facilities but in a more limited way.

Thank you to Ball Project for helping support our effort to offer more options for the girls to do outdoor and sports activities for their well-being.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners all around the world working faithfully to strengthen communities & help children play.

This is an encouraging update from one of our partners in Guatemala.

We thank you for always taking us into account, and supporting our “Victorious” Soccer School where children can be without any charge and only with the joy of participating in training. That has been thanks to the collaboration we have received from you.

We have several cases of children in need of not only economic but also of a hug to listen to them, to give them much encouragement. And that is what we try in our school, to give them that part that all or most of them lack, instructing them in the true journey of life, with a character training every time we meet to train in sport.

She is M, a young lady who started attending since the beginning of our Soccer School, and she has remained even in seasons where she has been the only woman in the trainings of her category, being very quiet she has managed to adapt to boys and training.

She is a lady with a lot of willpower, studies and at the same time works to help her family, being her family from a very poor background and having to help her other siblings, this has never being an impediment to continue training in our Soccer School.

She shared with me her joy and satisfaction of belonging to the School and how this community program has motivated her to continue in the daily struggle, despite the very long road she has to go to get to the Soccer School, she has always been motivated to share with each one of us, and to receive the good news that has also transformed her life. Not neglecting her passion for soccer.

Thanking God for your life and the Ball Project, which with your contribution have made many children enjoy soccer and especially a transformed life.

We truly appreciate your support but mostly, your prayers and encouragement to continue blessing our lives to be able to bless others and bring transformation to our communities.

Here are a few beautiful pictures of some beautiful children from one of our partners in Guatemala:
