Greetings friends, God bless you, we share the corresponding report for Ball Project.

Thank God we were able to buy all the budgeted, three of the items (the pump for inflating balls, the cones and the bag or ball carrier mesh), we got them on sale, which allowed us to additionally purchase two indoor soccer balls, a ball of mini basketball and an additional jump rope, with this the totality of the requested budget was covered; God is good.

The indoor soccer balls and part of the material we are using in a soccer academy that we started in another town with two brothers, soccer coaches whom we are training.

With a great desire in our hearts to meet our goals for this year, we can say that we are off to a good start. Soon we will begin two more spaces where we will do leadership development using basketball as a tool.

Thank you very much, God bless you.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners working faithfully to build communities & help children play.

This year 2022 we at Play Fast, Live Slow Basketball and Soccer are going to consolidate all that we have achieved in 2021!

Our objective is to work in the mentoring of all the children, youth and families that we have reached through sports and other strategies. We reached two communities with our work and we formed two sports schools in 2021.

In this new year, we are going to seek the growth of these sports schools and to expand to other communities.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners working faithfully to build communities & help children play.

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.

Help children play
