Greetings friends, God bless you, we share the corresponding report for Ball Project.

Thank God we were able to buy all the budgeted, three of the items (the pump for inflating balls, the cones and the bag or ball carrier mesh), we got them on sale, which allowed us to additionally purchase two indoor soccer balls, a ball of mini basketball and an additional jump rope, with this the totality of the requested budget was covered; God is good.

The indoor soccer balls and part of the material we are using in a soccer academy that we started in another town with two brothers, soccer coaches whom we are training.

With a great desire in our hearts to meet our goals for this year, we can say that we are off to a good start. Soon we will begin two more spaces where we will do leadership development using basketball as a tool.

Thank you very much, God bless you.

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

A short but encouraging update from one of our African partners in Angola:

That´s great to share what happening with sports development. Because of the pandemic all sport activities was stopped. But we found a way to give opportunities to kids for playing, we called it as a recreation, because recreation was allowed.

I continue supporting a sport club and having the balls is a big joy. We used footballs to reach two new cities and the balls were a mean of transport to engage and empower church and community leaders on sports leadership development for their young people.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners working faithfully to serve their communities, develop young people into leaders & help children play.

Future footballers in South Africa

2021 was a tough year in South Africa as all sports tournaments for schools were canceled due to pandemic. During some months some school sporting activities were allowed to take place but with no spectators or outside staff. That meant that we could not send our chaperones nor could we do the planned ball projects.

We did acquire about 500 tennis balls that we were supposed to use with planned ball projects. We also have about 50 Soccer balls that we were supposed to hand out to Township Soccer teams but with the restrictions, we were not allowed to. Hopefully, all this could be handed out in 2022.

We are very grateful for your support. The Ball project makes it possible for us to create opportunities to train volunteers in order to use them in our Ball Project Outreaches. They then become Chaperones at tournaments and once again use the tournament as a platform to hand out balls to coaches and Township teams.
