The 2020 West Africa Baseball Initiative for Ashanti region of Ghana
This project is in commemoratory of the late W.L. White (native of Lindale, GA), who was a longtime partner with Breakaway Outreach (20+ years) and passed on to his heavenly home last October. Our missional focus with this partnership is threefold:
1) To empower vulnerable children with the gospel while building resilience skills through baseball clinics and sports training
2) To train indigenous coaches in West Africa, equipping and resourcing them to be disciplers and mentoring shapers of future generations
3) To strengthen communities by fostering cross-cultural partnerships, creating sustainable youth sports programs, and providing tangible resources for development
🇬🇭 ⚾ West Africa Baseball Initiative
• 207 kids attended our gospel-centered baseball camp • 11 schools partnered together for this outreach project • 24 new coaches trained and equipped for sports ministry
We established the foundation for the very first baseball league in Ashanti region of Ghana, commissioning a head baseball coach and a staff of assistants. Coaches will continue to meet monthly for training together and developing multiple youth teams. We believe that God is going to use baseball to empower kids with hope, bring about gospel transformation, raise up next generation leaders, and further His kingdom through this sports ministry for years to come.
This is your chance to stake your claim to dodgeball glory! Form your team and go head to head against others as you battle your way to the top. Proceeds will benefit Chattanooga area at-risk youth and help send children of prisoners to summer camp. Come out and play, support your team as a spectator, or just come out and be entertained.
