Here is an encouraging update from one of our South African partners & an opportunity to support them!

The Prochorus Development Cycling project has had its second incident of theft. This time luckily only four bikes were stolen. After seriously upgrading security we hope and pray that this will not happen again.

The team of boys and girls are increasing as the summer days are back and they enjoy learning and racing. We have a family who does home schooling with their children and their three boys are now joining the group rides on a regular basis. The cross cultural interaction does the boys very well and they have really become friends. The father is also passionate about the development of children and we are looking at opportunities to implement “The World Needs A Father” principles with the boys and hopefully involve their parents (especially Dads) in this soon.

There’s also a new tool we’re starting to implement on the programme, which develops the occupational intelligence of the kids and helps them to overcome their distorted thinking and beliefs. I believe this will make a deep impact in their lives.

Various other activities are done, like swimming and running lessons, to give the kids balanced physical development.

We’re hoping to permanently register on GlobalGiving, but we need to raise $ 5000 by 27 September 2019, any help will be greatly appreciated. The project campaign can be found on the GlobalGiving website: www.globalgiving.org named “Cycling Whole Life Coaching For @Risk African Kids”

Ball Project is thankful for all of our partners working hard to help children play.

Ball Project provided $300 recently for us to purchase basketball, volleyballs, and soccer balls for a community sports camp here in Albuquerque. This was the first major project that our local community sports team has attempted, and it went really well!

We did a 3-day sports camp for around 35 kids in the International District, a neighborhood in Albuquerque synonymous with crime, poverty, gang activity, and hopelessness. We partnered together with a local Hispanic church, an after school program, a local basketball coach, and SportQuest.

Together we were able to provide an excellent experience for these kids that was fun, that helped them play and be active, and that gave them hope. Each day we focused on a specific word: Passion, Perseverance, and Purpose, and we shared a faith story. The kids loved it, and many of them will stay involved with our local organizations and opportunities (church, after school program, basketball skill development, etc.).

This event was such an encouragement to our team, and now we are dreaming about the next step in the development of our team as well as in serving this community. A huge thanks to Ball Project for providing the sports equipment for this project! That was a great blessing and encouragement to us!

Ball Project is thankful for our partners around the world, like this community sports team in Albuquerque, for helping children play.

After a long & eventful journey to South Africa, we are back home again in Indiana & back at work. It was good to go & good to be back.

The trip to South Africa was inspiring & encouraging. We met with many partners & friends.

It was great to get time with old & new partners to talk, drink tea, share stories & find out what is happening & what is working & what isn’t.

As always, Ball Project is grateful for our partners working in South Africa & around the world to help children play.
