Our Programs

Ukraine Little League Baseball and Softball

The Ukraine Little League Baseball and Softball Program invites Ukrainian orphans ages 5 - 18 to play organized baseball and/or softball in villages and cities across Ukraine. These children’s lives are enriched by lessons in teamwork, striving for success, and interacting with their peers and adult leaders. For one week out of the year the children laugh and play the same as any other child.   

The Annual Orphanage Baseball Championship is the only program of this type in the world. The children are taught to remember the act of kindness shared with them through the opportunity to participate in the program, and to repay the kindness as they grow into adulthood.  

 

This program is officially affiliated with Little League Baseball, INC, the largest youth program in the world and is a distinguished UUARC program.  Those who would like to help these children, may donate new or gently used equipment such as baseballs, softballs, bats, gloves, hats, masks, or make a tax deductible contribution payable to UUARC and noting "LLBaseball" on your check.
