Most children enjoy playing ball. Somewhere within the world, nearly every hour of every day, a child can be found playing ball. Here in the U.S., we have the benefit of grass fields to play on. However, not all children have that benefit. The One World Futbol Project is a project that is making it possible for anyone, anywhere to play soccer with a ball that matches the endurance of the sport.
The One World Futbol Project was spearheaded by Tim Jahnigen, an inventor, song-writer, and music producer. After watching footage on CNN—of young Darfur refugees playing a makeshift game of soccer under the hot sun—with the “ball” a sphere made of trash tied up with twine and the “field” a patch of dirt and rocks with barbed wire for boundaries—Tim couldn’t help but think that a ball could be made to withstand the rugged terrain and harsh conditions, one that would allow these children to play ball WITH a ball.
Tim later shared his vision an indestructible soccer ball with world-renowned entertainer Sting, who immediately offered financial backing for research and development of the indestructible ball. Through their efforts, OWFP has created the world’s most durable soccer ball, one that never deflates, will play even when punctured, and can be played in the harshest of environments. It even survived a round in the lion’s pen at the Johannesburg Zoo and remained playable after being run over by a pickup truck.

The ultra-durable, all-terrain One World Futbol is sold online through a “Buy One Give One” model at oneworldfutbol.com. For every ball purchased, One World Futbol Project is committed to donating a second ball to a non-governmental organization working with people who live in harsh environments around the world, including refugee camps, UN hot spots, conflict zones, inner cities and poor communities worldwide.
So, this Christmas, as you buy a ball for the little guy or gal on your list, why not shop for gifts that give back and give one to a child who may not otherwise ever receive one? Trust me, if their smile is anything like my son’s as he plays with his One World Futbol, it is truly worth it!
My son absolutely loves his! And my daughter loves to pounce and bounce on it. But, since I know it can stand up to being driven over by a truck, I don’t mind!
