In the midst of the Covid-19 Crisis, here is an encouraging update from one of our partners in Haiti:

Even before the COVID-19 crisis, there was a political and economic crisis in Haiti.

This has disrupted many things, but SportQuest partner, TF, has remained committed to leading his sports academy and training up whole-life leaders through soccer and basketball. He also has created a WhatsApp group for 100+ soccer coaches who are developing their players holistically.

When possible, he provides training and equipment for them to use in their communities.

In 2010, Play It Forward, a community sports program has been established to work with children and youth through the world of sport and play. Since that time it has been successful as it should be. Many athletes and coaches in the community are very engaged.

In 2016, I attended a sports leadership school. This school has changed my life in so many special way, I have become a better man for my family, friends, my country and for my Caribbean region as well in particular. Due to this school, I have a established right after I came to Haiti a sport Academy . Through my leadership and the Academy, there are about one hundred coaches, thousands of athletes and ten sport organizations who are involved in our sport community in Haiti. Many coaches are trained to go to be mentors in every city, community and village through sport and play. I would love to thank SportQuest and finally Ball Project for support and partnership as well. May we continue giving everything we have.

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

Here is a wonderful update from Nou Hope, one of our partners in Haiti:

We were able to purchase two of the One World Futbols (one for each the village of LaMare and Terre-Salei’s futbol teams).

We also purchased two other regular soccer balls for the villages (see photo from Sunday’s futbol match with ball being used) along with some pump needles that were given to the coaches of the two teams.

We then dispersed funds to our partners so they could purchase two more game quality balls in country and then hire locals (from the village of Terre-Salei) to make 200-250 jump ropes to be distributed to several schools in the area.

Thank you for partnering with us! It is good to see the people in the village playing.
