More than just a means to recreate or a route to college, sport is an essential part of human development that teaches indispensable lessons about teamwork, conflict resolution and tolerance, and helps heal unthinkable traumas.
But all across the globe, where the healing power of play is most needed, and children live in the harshest conditions, from refugee camps to remote rural villages, where traditional balls don’t last. In these places, plastic bags, rope, inflated condoms and all manner of trash serve as soccer balls.
The soccer ball designed for kids is indestructible. It is called as one world futbol. Tim Jahnigen came up with the idea after watching refugee children playing with a makeshift ball. Here is how it can withstand almost anything.
It is made out of special material called Pop Foam. It does not need a pump and never goes flat. The main goal of the Tim was to create a ball that kids could use on any terrain in the world. For every ball purchased, the one world play project gives a ball to kids in need. The company has sent balls to places like Malawi, Rwanda, and Thailand.
Currently, they are sending them to kids in refugee camps. It is available in an affordable price of 40-45 US Dollar. The design of the One World Futbol goes even further. Because the ball is made from a solid sphere of foam, it never goes flat, does not require a pump and is super sustainable because it eliminates the need to trash it
