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.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners continuing to work hard around the world to help their communities & help children play.

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.

Ball Project partners with organizations all over the world working with children, families, coaches, orphans, addicts, prisoners, refugees, schools, leagues, teams & more.

Here is an encouraging update from one of our partners, Last Bell, in Ukraine.

Last Bell works with orphanage graduates and their families in Zhytomyr, Ukraine. The Ball Project has helped us with equipment at our Crisis Shelter Housing facility, and with balls and equipment – including some that went to one of the former orphans MP, who is now using her sports leadership training to run soccer groups with orphans and orphan-led families.

Last Bell works with orphans in Ukraine as they age out of the state orphanage system into society.

Ball Project partners continually encourage & humble us with how they work to help their communities & help children play.
