Do all the good you can

By all the means you can

In all the ways you can

At all the times you can

To all the people you can

For as long as ever you can

I am on my way to South Africa. I will be traveling with my 4 best advisors.

Future footballers in South Africa

The focus of the trip will be to meet with new & old friends & partners & see some existing projects & scout for new opportunities. A couple of practical outcomes will be:

  1. Find out what is working & what isn’t
  2. Find out ways Ball Project can & can’t help

little kids with lots of balls

It is important to try to be with partners face to face on the ground where we can eat together & spend time talking, listening, encouraging, learning & playing with one another as we work together to help children play.

Here is a series of short updates from a Ball Project partner in the Bahamas:

It is a beautiful day on Eleuthera.  A friend and I re-surfaced this backboard.  It was crumbling from where the rim was broken off.  Nothing that a 5/8 sheet of plywood cannot fix!  A friend sent some nets.  Pretty cool.

For the past 2 years I have been volunteering at 2 primary schools with limited sports equipment.  Fortunately a couple of people have helped out with the school in James Cistern.  The Hatchet Bay school is really lacking as are so many of the other primary schools.

Right now, the biggest need is at P.A.Gibson Primary in Hatchet Bay.  This settlement is mostly underprivileged people.  The children do not have much to do because they do not have much.  A friend recently gave them a volleyball net and a ball.  They went crazy!  I would love for them to have a couple of adjustable basketball goals with some regulation size balls but also some of those smaller balls for the younger children.  I have a couple of soccer balls for them but we do not have any goals so soccer goals would be amazing!
