Here is an encouraging update from one of our partners in Venezuela:

We are just getting new balls and starting to shipping to around 12 different towns in Venezuela though coaches, academies and teams.

I, personally, continue with surf school on Saturdays and baseball academy, twice a week, teaching not only sports, but values and leadership principles.

Please note the amounts of the invoice of October 2017 was  2 million two hundred fifty three bolivares, Venezuela currency for 45 balls, For 32 balls in may this year the price was one hundred twenty two million , so one hundred twenty million local currency difference in just 6 months for less, the price for 45 balls in October is more than price for just one ball today, unbelievable but true and by the way the price in $ is around $250 in both dates.

Ball Project is grateful for our partners working hard to help their communities & help children play, even in difficult economic & living situations.

Here is a short update from one of our partners in Portugal:

We run and operate ‘surf camp.’ Our strategy is to reach the surf, skate and student populations for community transformation through surf and skate. Once a week, we take boards and suits down to the beach. We engage all sorts of people, from seasoned surfers to underprivileged beach bums to curious tourists. We give them a free lesson and invite them to dinner. We tell them who we are, what we do, and what we are trying to accomplish. Through this program (and with the help of the Ball Project to purchase more surf equipment) we have seen about 10 come to join us in relationship, leading to all sorts of positive symptoms in their lives. Our group has grown to an average of 45 people. We are very thankful and excited for the continued impact we are getting to have in Porto.

As always, we are thankful for our partners, advisers, donors & coaches for helping children by helping children play.

Help children play
