3 boys with 3 balls

Our work is focus on community development through sports (football),working with children ages 8-15, We work with a total number of 120 in four communities in Lagos and Ogbadibo Benue. We meet three times in a week for football training and mentor them, thereby building relationship with their parents and community.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners, like Ambassadors, working faithfully to build community & help children play.

A short but sweet update from one of our Nigerian partners:

As part of our programs, we traveled to Kaduna State to lead a sports leadership training. We had 16 coaches coming from different communities.

Also, we distributed about 160 Balls (150 soccer balls and 10 basketballs)!

Ball Project is thankful for our partners around the world traveling & training coaches to help children play.

One of our partners in Nigeria has been busy even during the Covid lockdown training coaches online & connecting with new & existing coaches to mentor young people, facilitate leadership training & help children play.

They have been starting new soccer teams, training coaches & planning new coaching training in many parts of the country.
