The big idea behind Ball Project is simple: help children play.

Kids that play together won’t kill each other when they grow up.

Ball Project helps get balls & sports equipment to coaches & community leaders around the world.

Ball Project is volunteer led & our partners help kids & communities around the world.

Here is an encouraging update from one of our friends & partners in Zimbabwe:

A million thanks to the Ball Project for giving us support.

I have coaches I work with on our project. Our project is to keep the young ones busy and away from drugs and abuse.

The coaches are also attached to a school that I assist for the less privileged members of the society.  We focus on soccer, netball and volleyball. We also teach values and life skills and how bad drugs are. Even the kids not at school we try to occupy them.

We also go and do some sporting activities at the orphanage where I am involved.

We are thankful for our partners around the world who do so much, often with so little, to help many different facets of their society. &, obviously, we are grateful they are buys helping kids play.
