Here is a short update & request from one of our key partners in Uganda:

It’s been a while that we asked for help in the Ball Project.

This has been ongoing and the need for soccer balls continues to grow.

We launched One Church One Ball and this has been great to see how they use the soccer ball.

The challenges have been the number of requests, quality soccer balls that can endure are expensive, also some get completely discouraged when their soccer ball bursts and they can’t buy another.

Ball Project is grateful to be able to help at this time, thanks to our generous donors & advisors who allow Ball Project to help children play.

Thanks to all of our partners, donors & advisors for helping children play!

It is amazing to see the power of sport & the power of play uproot people & get them to move across the world to help children play.

This partner is from Belgium but works with kids in South Africa. They are moving full time to South Africa in a few months.

Here is a short update on their work:

We used the donation from Ball Project for our sport camp we set up in South Africa in the township of Tikwana (This is in the Free state province).

We set up a sport camp every year with limited resources, to get the kids off the streets but also encourage, teach and mentor them and just give them an amazing time.

We are also permanently there in a few months and will continue to use the soccer balls, volleyballs and cones we bought then to set up sports programs throughout the year.
