It's not an official team jersey or even a soccer ball, but this may be one of the most interesting products we've ever offered.
Made of bags, newspapers and materials that others may view as trash, these "rag balls" offer economic empowerment and entrepreneurial training to the young people across Africa who hand make each one. These young craftsmen and women range in ages from 12-25 and must attend school to be a part of the program. Rag Ball International offers a sustainable income, entrepreneurial training and education to the young ball makers. Each ball comes with a player card that has a photo and details about the young craftsman who made it. Since these balls are hand made, each one is unique and you will not be able to choose color.
