Sport development in Nepal has been serving a variety of groups and communities through sport for almost two decades. Ball Project has been a wonderful partner for many years for many areas of Nepal sport development .

We have soccer and basketball for the children, young adults and adults. Basketball coaching twice each week and soccer coaching, friendly matches and tournaments for all ages almost all season.

We work with 12 plus coaches and community sport leaders face to face each week.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners working hard to help children play.

Here is a short update & request from one of our key partners in Uganda:

team prayer

It’s been a while that we asked for help in the Ball Project.

This has been ongoing and the need for soccer balls continues to grow.

We launched One Church One Ball and this has been great to see how they use the soccer ball.

The challenges have been the number of requests, quality soccer balls that can endure are expensive, also some get completely discouraged when their soccer ball bursts and they can’t buy another.

Ball Project is grateful to be able to help at this time, thanks to our generous donors & advisors who allow Ball Project to help children play.

The big idea behind Ball Project is simply to help children play.

Ball Project helps children play by helping get balls & sports equipment to community leaders & coaches around the world.

Ball Project partners help children play in Africa, Asia, Europe, North & South & Latin America, & the South Pacific. Ball Project partners help children play in orphanages, prisons, refugee camps, rehab centers, schools & community leagues & clinics.

A decent soccer ball can cost anywhere from $6 in Mozambique to close to $80 in the South Pacific.

Ball Project is volunteer led & made possible by the support of our partners & donors.

& obviously, Ball Project is grateful for our partners around the world working to improve their communities & to help children play.
