We are back home again in Indiana after 10 days in India, Nepal, Singapore & Malaysia.

It was a great trip meeting with existing & potential partners & donors.

Highlights included:

  1. Visiting a Kathmandu drug rehab center as they were graduating a recovering addict after 2 years in the program.
  2. Visiting a partner’s soccer & basketball academy in Kathmandu while the kids were having their clinics.
  3. Meeting with 2 different groups of coaches in Chennai.
  4. 2 friends had babies just after our visits.
  5. Made connections with potential new partners for Mongolia & Myanmar.

These trips are always exhausting but encouraging. & I’m grateful that I get to go on them.

Lots of opportunities, lots of work, lots of friends, lots of partners….

Relationships are the foundation of a good partnership. Face to face time with friends & partners in their homes & offices is a key to keeping relationships & therefore partnerships strong.

I am grateful for our amazing partners, advisors & donors who work so hard to help children play.

I am on my way to Asia for 10 days visiting Ball Project partners & projects in India, Nepal, Singapore & Malaysia.

I will also be visiting friends & other projects such as Sangita Charitable Trust, one of The Viewfinder Project partners.

I am calling the trip the Asian Airport Tour because we will barely be in each country for more than 48 hours. I say ‘we’ because one of the fabulous Ball Project Advisory Team members is coming along to see some of what is happening around the world. It should be good fun.

A trip like this is a great help to understand better what partners are doing & current challenges & opportunities they may be having. &, of course, face to face time is always more valuable than simply trading emails, text messages, pictures or videos.

I am always grateful for time with our amazing partners who do so much to help children play.

Ready for action

I am on a 2 week trip to visit Ball Project partners, projects & potential partners in India, Nepal, Malaysia & Singapore.

These trips are always exhausting & encouraging. & they are a great way to continue to grow, learn, network & build our relationships & trust with our partners.

Any thoughts, well wishes, prayers &/or good vibes sent my way will be most appreciated.
