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.

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.
