Here is a great update from one of our partners in Mali.

handing out new balls to coaches

Through Ball Project support, we have been able to provide balls to 15 whole life coaches from 7 cities. The coaches are from 14 different groups.

Ball Project partnership was an opportunity to empower and help those whom stopped to restart their coaching and values and principles teaching with their teams.

A regular follow up has been conducted to encourage the coaches and to support them.
At the end of May 2018, these coaches was working weekly with about 220 kids. During each meeting the coaches share stories, life skills and principles with their team’s members.

Ball Project is grateful to be able to work with such committed partners around the world working hard to build community & help children play.

 

Here is a nice update from one of our partners in India:

Our sport organization Life Sport Academy helped reaching 25 centres and more with value based teaching and training through sport. We used football, volleyball and cricket to help teach values to kids. Overall we reached over 1500 kids with sport and value development.

As a followup, we will use this base to create deeper relationship with the players, their families and their communities and schools. This will be a long process that will go through for a considerable span of time which will help see deep transformation for the player and beyond.

All of the funds we have spent for the sport equipment during this season has been well worth the investment.

Thank you for serving alongside!

Ball Project is thankful for our partners around the world working faithfully to help children play & working to transform lives of young people & communities over the long term.

This is a encouraging update from one of our partners in Togo that had a tragic accident last year.

For more than 10 years The Amis du Monde football (Soccer) club in Lome, Togo has given girls at opportunity to play football. It is a Christian based club and participation allows the girls to develop, physically, socially and spiritually. In a country where AIDS is a problem, football gives the girls a positive social activity.

The club provides training, coaching and enables the girls to play matches in local and national competitions. Balls are expensive in Togo and don’t last long on the rough fields – often without grass – where they practice and play. The support of the Ball Project over the years has been a Godsend.

In March 2018 the team was involved in a serious bus crash in which the driver was killed and others were seriously injured. The bus then caught fire destroying all their footballs. With the help of the Ball Project they have now been able to replace the 20 balls which were destroyed.

Ball Project is grateful for our partners working around the world to help children play & overcome accidents & tragedies that hit us all at one point or another.
