This is an encouraging update from one of our partners in Haiti, Play It Forward.

Academie du sport et de leadership /Play It Forward working through sport and leadership in Haiti. We use sport as a tool to mentor and develop young leaders. Sport is a unique opportunity that we have to work with children, youth and families. We are working with coaches and athletes to train and equip them to be godly leaders in the sporting fields, leadership and modeling. Currently, we are working with more than 130 coaches across Haiti and helping them form community leadership teams.

We use the Ball Project funds to supply our sport academy as well as 130 coaches all over Haiti who are affiliated with the movement. I meet with these coaches 3 times a year to keep them motivated in their work with children and to share the vision of working in communities through sport. I’m not able to supply all of them, so those who really catch the vision, show faithfulness in their work, and stay connected in our WhatsApp group are the ones who receive the sport equipment so they can work more effectively. These coaches receive training and sport equipment to work with thousands of children and youth in Haiti. With the Ball Project funds, thousands of children and youth are being transformed by learning who is God and how to be a leader in their community. They will be changed by living out the heart values. They will learn to make our community look better. They will understand the role of a coach in their life as a father who will help them to succeed in life.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners around the world working faithfully to develop young leaders, build community & help children play.

In our work in Haiti, Play it Forward are working with children from 6-25 years old. Those children used to play soccer bare foot and naked in the community. With our sport academy everything is changed for them. They have balls and sport equipment to practice and they coaches to train them not only sport but also life discipline, listening to the good news and words of wisdom and practical values to form their character. I wanted to thank Ball Project for providing funds so that our children and youth can play for a higher purpose.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners in Haiti & around the world working faithfully to help children play.

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.
