Boy With a Ball Global does the important and highly impactful work of founding, equipping and supporting local youth development organizations. As a result, our work makes a difference in several countries separated by thousands of miles from those who have the capacity to fund our work. This week, BWABG has been given a matching grant for $4500 that, once matched, will allow us to build a new website to help connect those who invest with our work to the images and stories of those we serve.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Young people around the world are being destroyed more than they are being developed. They are being victimized more than they are being valued. As a result, the future of the world will be handed to a line of successive generations who have been damaged. Those who have been damaged will produce damage. Damaged families. Damaged children. Damaged neighborhoods. A damaged world.
How will this project solve this problem?
Boy With a Ball Global works to better cities by reaching young people and equipping them to be leaders capable of transforming their own communities. Through our work: -We create and implement innovative methodologies. -We found, equip and support local youth, family and community development organizations in cities across the world. -We weave communities of practices locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. -We advocate for the dissemination of best practices in youth dvlpt.
Potential Long Term Impact
BWABG works as an incubator of local youth, family and community development organizations that develop teams which conduct outreach into local at-risk neighborhoods and draw young people and their family members into one-to-one mentoring relationships and developmental small groups from which they can be developed as leaders. This work has led to a transformation of the communities in which we work allowing us to turn and reach additional communities. Our aim is to now spread across the globe
