Spotlight: The Great Football Giveaway
In 2007 two Agility offices kicked off participation in the Great Football Giveaway (GFG) by helping transport footballs to Angola. The following year, Agility transported 3,500 footballs and netballs to Uganda for distribution to 200 schools; and in 2009 Agility supported efforts in Rwanda. Through schools, orphanages, camps and youth community centers, GFG Team Rwanda distributed 2,500 new footballs, netballs, pumps and other sports equipment.

Spotlight: Back to school in a Vietnam village
Agility volunteers and a number of their friends painted classrooms, designed and installed an electrical system to support lamps and fans, repaired flooring, landscaped the school yard and hung a sign proclaiming Diem Truong Kinh 8 primary school. About 100 students attend the refurbished school where they can now study and play safely. Because of its remote location, the school receives no support from local charities.
