Here is the current situation for NWFM, one of our partners in the Seattle area in the USA:

Like many others, our work has been drastically impacted by COVID-19 this year. We are still shutdown here, and are waiting for Phase 3 before we can begin training again.

We have been able to check in with coaches and their families to see if there are any needs. Zoom and video calls have allowed us access to check in with players.

We received donated equipment from a national foundation. Along with other donations, we were able to give away 75 soccer balls to help refugee kids play here in WA.

We partnered with another national sports agency for two soccer camps this summer. 6 kids made a decision for further mentoring and coaching.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners working hard during these challenging times to help children play.

Here is a brief update from our partner NW Football Ministries in the Puget Sound area:

The primary target for our Ball Project grant was purchasing equipment for the youth soccer league we are putting together. Our league features sites from around the region, each with its own set of coaches, volunteers and players. The equipment is also shared and used for camps, clinics, and other programs. Our hope is to be working with over 100 kids by the end of the year.

We will also impact a few hundred kids this summer through our soccer camps.

NW Football Ministries thanks you for your partnership.

Like Ball Project, NW Football Ministries is a volunteer led effort. Ball Project is very thankful for all of our partners in the USA & around the world building their communities & helping children play.
