The big idea behind Ball Project is simply to help children play.

Ball Project helps children play by helping get balls & sports equipment to community leaders & coaches around the world.

Ball Project partners help children play in Africa, Asia, Europe, North & South & Latin America, & the South Pacific. Ball Project partners help children play in orphanages, prisons, refugee camps, rehab centers, schools & community leagues & clinics.

A decent soccer ball can cost anywhere from $6 in Mozambique to close to $80 in the South Pacific.

Ball Project is volunteer led & made possible by the support of our partners & donors.

& obviously, Ball Project is grateful for our partners around the world working to improve their communities & to help children play.

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.
