Here is an encouraging update from one of our partner Last Bell in Ukraine that works with orphans & their children.

Thanks for providing play equipment for orphanage graduates’ children!

We work with about 500 orphanage graduates per year, about half of that closely. Many of them are parents. Our recent Ball Project grant purchases were used to purchase balls, sports equipment, and climbing/play equipment both indoors and outdoors at the Shelter, our crisis housing facility for young moms. We finished renovating the Shelter late last year, and since then it’s been full of children whose moms needed someplace safe to live!

These kids love playing together at the Shelter. Many of them were in terrible, unsafe living situations with no way to play. Now they play like other children using balls and the other equipment.

Ball Project is thankful to have so many amazing partners around the world working to help transform their communities & to help children play!

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

We did local football project and football camp for 8 teams from Ukraine.

About my Projects:

1)We work with 2 age groups in my community this is around 50 kids. We practice together around 4 times per week. We have a character lesson once a week.
2) We helped create a network among coaches in Ukraine. It is called Christian Football of Ukraine we help each other by conducting tournaments, camps and educational courses. We see how common help allows us to be more effective in our work.
3) One of my former players on my team moved to Kiev to University to do sports development work and he serves the student community through Frisbee.

Several Ball Project partners have started using Frisbee in their sport development work. Frisbee is great because it is inexpensive & portable. Frisbee can be competitive or simply fun.

I travel allover the world with my Aerobie Dogobie flying disc because it is soft & flexible & fits in my back pocket.

I have played Frisbee with 5 year old kids & 90 year old women out in a tiny village in India on a trip with Invisible Girl Project. I have played Frisbee with kids in Egypt & Hyde Park, London

It is fun to see Frisbee growing internationally as a way to build communities, health & fitness, teams & to help children play.
