After a long & eventful journey to South Africa, we are back home again in Indiana & back at work. It was good to go & good to be back.

The trip to South Africa was inspiring & encouraging. We met with many partners & friends.

It was great to get time with old & new partners to talk, drink tea, share stories & find out what is happening & what is working & what isn’t.

As always, Ball Project is grateful for our partners working in South Africa & around the world to help children play.

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

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

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.

The big idea behind Ball Project is simple: help children play.

Kids that play together won’t kill each other when they grow up.

Ball Project helps get balls & sports equipment to coaches & community leaders around the world.

Ball Project is volunteer led & our partners help kids & communities around the world.
