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.

One of the great things of working with Ball Project is that most of the people we work with are great, fun people that are friends as well as partners.

These partners from Panama are originally from Costa Rica. They are working primarily with students in Panama City each week. They are also training others to start their own projects.

Here is a short update from our friends:
