Last Bell works with orphanage graduates in Zhytomyr, Ukraine, about 450 last year, offering mentorship and practical help. Play is important for all our relationships, but especially for the little kids who stay at our Shelter Crisis Housing facility with their moms (who are orphans). Ball Project helped us install a trampoline, a play house, and other “at home” play equipment. Our kids are loving it!

Ball Project is thankful for our partners in Ukraine & around the world working to help build their communities & to help orphans, prisoners, refugees & children play.


Some parts of the world slowing down, some are closing, some remain closed, some are opening up.

Hopefully we will soon see a lot more children playing outside & together. In the meantime, Ball Project partners are continuing to help their communities in many creative & ongoing ways.

Even now one Ball Project partner in Panama is coaching volleyball virtually to their players at home.

Here is a short but sweet update from one of our partners in Ukraine:

Last Bell works with orphanage graduates and their families in Zhytomyr, Ukraine. We expect to work with 500+ this year, including many orphan parents.

The Shelter is our crisis housing program for orphan moms who need a place to stay with their kids and get on their feet again.

With the COVID-19 crisis, it’s especially important for these kids to be able to play inside, at home – and Ball Project has helped us equip our facility for that. Our kids love the play room!

Ball Project is thankful for our partners around the world working faithfully to help their communities & help children play.
