BP India soccer clinic 2019

I am back home after a quick trip to Singapore, India & Nepal visiting Ball Project partners. The time in Asia was very encouraging & there are lots of opportunities & partnerships to continue & develop.

I was able to introduce a few people to The Viewfinder Project & the great work they are doing teaching photography & life skills to help people “see life differently.”

It was good to go & it is good to be back.

Ball Project is thankful for our supporters & partners committed to help kids play.

The big idea behind Ball Project is: children that play together are less likely to fight each other when they grow up.

The mission of Ball Project is to help children play.

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

Ball Project partners help children play in Africa, Asia, Caribbean, 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 entirely 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.

I am on my way to Asia to meet with partners. It is never easy leaving family & friends at home. Thankfully 2 good friends are coming along.

The focus of the trip will be to meet with new & old friends & partners & see some existing projects & scout for new opportunities. A couple of practical outcomes will be:

  1. Find out what is working & what isn’t
  2. Find out ways Ball Project can & can’t help

It is important to try to be with partners face to face on the ground where we can eat together & spend time talking, listening, encouraging & learning from one another as we work together to help children play.
