Also known as “Have a Ball Foundation”, Have a Ball Foundation Incorporated is a small-scale charity established in 2013. Their main activity is registered as school sports primarily serving early childhood - aged under 6 children - aged 6 to under 15 youth - 15 to under 25 adults - aged 25 to under 65 families aboriginal and torres strait islander people financially disadvantaged people people at risk of homelessness/ people experiencing homelessness.

Our purpose is to bring smiles on the faces of kids in remote schools and communities in outback Australia to encourage a healthy, active and fun sporting life as well as raise money to support the health and well being of indigenous children. By distributing over 50,000 sports balls to date, we have: increased the retention of children in remote schools by using the power of sports by providing sporting balls and other sporting equipment which encourages children to attend and learn. This will have many downstream impacts such as: children receiving a better education improving the quality of life through learning about healthy living improving their chance of future employment opportunities improved health and fitness and provided enjoyment to children with sporting equipment where it encourages: offering healthy, fun activities teamwork building friendships providing children with fun activities which removes them from unfulfilling, troublesome activities they may otherwise partake in. improved the health conditions by providing the tools to assist with improved nutrition for communities e.g. seeds for a market garden. This will have a fundamental effect in prevention of chronic diseases if good nutrition is educated early in life and throughout their entire lifespan. Promoting health and wellbeing through healthy eating can substantially reduce the risk of some of the chronic diseases which are affecting many remote areas today. This also gives the ability for communities to be self sufficient with their healthy food supply and also provide them with opportunities to start an enterprise such as selling healthy food to the local resort. We have also distributed blankets to elderly people of the outback this year to keep them warm from the cold desert nights. closed the gap of indigenous and non indigenous people through education and building relationships between schools and communities.
