Hello! This is Jubal McDaniel with NW Football Ministries. NWFM hosts soccer camps throughout the year in different parts of Washington and Oregon. In the Fall, we help kids play by offering recreational soccer teams in Tacoma, WA.

At the beginning of July, NWFM was able to partner with World Relief in Spokane, WA to host a soccer camp for refugee youth. Together, with the help of The Ball Project, we were able to serve 55 youth ranging from 10-18 years old. Each child received a soccer ball, cleats, shin guards and soccer socks.

My takeaway from this camp was watching a small group of young Afghani girls throughout the week. In their home countries, women are not allowed to engage in activities like this camp. However, I have never seen such freedom and joy, around the game of soccer, as I saw in these young girls.

One of the World Relief staff told me that he has been working with these youth for six years, and has never seen them outside. Word was also passed along from the girls’ parents, and how happy they were to see their daughters enjoying sport for the first time.

We are looking forward to working together on this project again next year!

Ball Project is thankful for our partners, like NWFM, that are committed to build communities & help children play.

After a long & eventful journey to South Africa, we are back home again in Indiana & back at work. It was good to go & good to be back.

The trip to South Africa was inspiring & encouraging. We met with many partners & friends.

It was great to get time with old & new partners to talk, drink tea, share stories & find out what is happening & what is working & what isn’t.

As always, Ball Project is grateful for our partners working in South Africa & around the world to help children play.

The mission of Ball Project is to help children play. Ball Project was born from the idea that children who play together are less likely to fight each other when they grow up.
