Sweet Success on Centre Court
A hand up, not a hand out
What child can resist playing with a ball? We discover that joy early in life as we learn to bounce, catch, kick, throw, and chase after them in pursuit of fun.
For a group of 10 to 12-year-old girls in Cantón Bella Vista, Guatemala, the pursuit of fun and basketball has led to champion status in their community, and they have the Compassionate Eye Foundation to thank for getting the ball rolling.
One of CEF’s newest partners, Winds of Change, is returned recently to complete its project in Pedro Arauz - a small community of approximately 80 families that is located in rural Nicaragua. While Winds of Change has been developing a relationship with this community for some time, this is CEF’s first opportunity to learn about its environment and people - to evaluate its needs, and to assess the impact of this project on its peoples’ quality of life.
