Here is a great recent update from one of our Indian partners located in the city of Chennai.

~~~~~~

Winter in Chennai only means that kids love to play more and more. It’s that time of the year when kids can play for long hours without having to worry about the sun, heat and sweat that will tire them. Many young boys have come forward to play soccer recently. We have been coaching close to 40 boys around the prison area in Chennai, India.

We have been giving them a good chance to play in tournaments which has been a big encouragement for the young boys. They live in communities where the young boys are not often given chances to play when the senior boys play. Most of the younger boys who get coached have not played in tournaments and are coached well. Through the “Ball Project” program we are able to provide opportunities.

This season we have also been teaching the value of serving and giving through soccer. Perhaps, no one has ever taught them before that giving and sharing are values that will build people and communities. It has been very satisfying teaching these young boys these values and in turn building young lives that will change communities.

Ball Project is very grateful for our partners who help children by helping children play.

Here is a nice update from one of our partners in Chennai India.

~~~~~~

Namratha is 22 years old and represents the state of Tamil Nadu in the National Volleyball championships in India.

She lives in Chennai and has completed her Masters studies from a very reputed university in Chennai.

Namratha is a very bright young girl and comes from a broken lower middle class family.

Her story in sports is an inspiration to thousands of young kids with whom she shares her story and her life through volleyball coaching.

A few years ago Namratha came in contact with the LIFE SPORTS ACADEMY volleyball coaching team and began learning basic volleyball skills.  Extremely interested in the sport and passionate to grow her gifting, she became proactive student and slowly engaged herself in helping the coaching staff as an assistant. Years passed by and through her passion, she now is the leading volleyball player and a Volleyball skills & life Skills coach at the  LIFE SPORTS ACADEMY.

Rewind a bit and it will be very easy to point back to the beginnings of the LIFE SPORTS ACADEMY which sustains even today with the huge support of the BALL PROJECT.  The BALL PROJECT provides volleyballs to help kids play sport here in LIFE SPORTS ACADEMY at Chennai. Namratha is clearly a product of the LSA supported by the BALL PROJECT.

Obviously her life has changed dramatically over the years because of her volleyball passion and today she is a leader everywhere. In her university she was a leader, in her team she is a natural leader, at the LSA academy she is a key leader and now she is beginning to emerge as a good leader in the sports and life movement in Chennai India.

For sure 1000’s of kids and youth benefit from the BALL PROJECT every year here in Chennai through different sports initiatives like the Kids Games, Sports teams, Sport academies, Sports camps and Sports outreaches for Whole Life Coaching. Massive impact definitely because of the consistent support of the BALL PROJECT.

We remain so grateful for the BALL PROJECT which has supported the work of LSA over the years and look forward to many many more years of fruitful partnership as we build people and lives towards a better world….

This is just one inspirational story among the hundreds of stories…. Rejoice together..

Thank you BALL PROJECT.

We are grateful for our fantastic partners on the ground around the world changing lives by helping children by helping children play.

Here is an update from one of our Ball Project partners in Kenya. They are working in the Dadaab Refugee Camp.

<><><><><>

I attach an updated report on the Grant of US$1,000 received by Sports Aid Africa for balls to be used in the Dadaab Refugee camp.

In March 2014, 40 hard ground soccer balls and 10 volleyballs were given to the 50 coaches who attended the whole life coaches training.

The balance for 26 hard ground balls will be used by our team and the previously trained soccer coaches in their week long visit in Dadaab during June 2014. These additional 26 balls will then be left with the coaches along with other balls that another partner will contribute.

We are so grateful for the generous contribution of the balls for our projects in the camp. Please convey our thanks to the donors concerned.
