Some of the things I can mention about our Jonkershoek Cycling Project, is that I am glad to see our cycling project leader having a really deep connection with the kids on the team. He understands them so well and connects on a very personal level with their circumstances and can therefore align his life lessons and mentoring to be extremely relevant.

We are very glad to have a strong group of girls participating (varying between 6 and 10). We have a very special lady volunteer that does a lot of effort with them and mentors them on a deep level. Besides the cycling training and skills sessions, she has a mentoring group where they discuss things on a more focused and personal level.

The whole team consists of about 18-20 kids, but the quality of influence and leadership is excellent.

We are very grateful for the support from Ball Project. Thank you!

Ball Project supports lots of different kinds of community based sports & fitness program to  equip coaches & to community leaders to help children play & achieve their full potential.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners around the world working through sports & games to help children play.

Here is a wonderful update from our partner Prochorus in South Africa:

Mountain biking team 2017

The Prochorus Development Cycling and Whole Life Coaching project, is aimed at serving the kids and youth of the poor community in Jonkershoek, which has almost no other activities to develop them and stimulate them. We have riding sessions every weekday afternoon with various groups, including girls. There are also mentoring times in small group session outside the normal cycling activities. Over weekends there are often cycling events where they get to test their skills and fitness against outside competition and be motivated towards their goals, self discipline and dedication, which are part of the life skills they learn.
