Here is a short update from one of our partners in Kathmandu:

Ambassadors clinic 3

We are running a regular soccer academy on the weekends for the children age 6 to 17 who are divided into different age groups.

Due to monsoon, we have closed down our training and will resume after monsoon.

Ambassadors clinic
We will be supporting balls in Mahottari region where many community kids come and play and coaches have the opportunity to reach out to these kids.

We will be adding full time and a part time coach soon which will help us impact and reach many children.

It is always encouraging to see Ball Project partners working together to help children play.

I am back home from a week of partner meetings in Asia & about a week of partner meetings here in the USA.

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

In Asia, I was supposed to go to Nepal but Air India decided to cancel my flights. So no Nepal but I got an extra day in Singapore.

Soccer clinic in Nepal that I did not get to see…..

The time in Asia was very encouraging & there are lots of opportunities & partnerships to develop.

I spent almost a week here in the USA with partners from around the world. I had meetings with at least 20 partners from 19 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, South Pacific & North, South & Central America.

I was able to connect with potential Ball Project partners in France & Sweden, as well as, introduce a few people to The Viewfinder Project & the great work they are doing using photography to help people “see life differently.”

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