Here is an encouraging update from one of our partners in Malawi in Africa:

Thank you so much for your generous gift to Sports Friends Malawi!

This week, we were able to purchase the balls and have begun the distribution process to our 9 teams in the city of Blantyre.

We will be able to give 1 ball to each netball and soccer coach who attends our Ongoing Training next month from April 12-16 in the eastern region of Malawi.  There will 65 people coming to this ongoing training and we can’t wait to see the look on their faces when they get a brand new ball. Several of these coaches have not had a ball for many months but have still managed to work effectively by just using local materials and plastic to make balls. But this will certainly be a massive boost to them and their teams.

This is one of the poorest areas in the world. Despite the extreme poverty, many of our trained coaches are working hard and are mentoring the youth on their teams.

Ball Project is grateful to all of our partners around the world, working hard to help children play.

Here is a short update from one of our Sports Friends partners in Malawi:

This photo is of the girls netball camp hosted in November. It was a blessed time of togetherness and fun for 2 days in the hot sun.  Over 40 C (104 F) outside but that did not stop the girls from playing and being mentored.  We thank you for your partnership in the work with us as we used 6 of the netballs that we bought from the grant we received.  There were six different netball teams who came to the camp and, at the end of the camp, we were able to give each team a ball to take home for their ongoing programs.
