How We’re Making a Difference
At Enlace Rural, we’re working to improve the lives of rural communities in Hidalgo, Mexico through elementary education, self-improvement and microfinance courses. We are 100 students from Mexico City who volunteer by visiting the communities every weekend and spend two weeks living there to teach.
One of the most powerful ways to create trust between the communities and volunteers is by playing the most popular sport in Mexico: soccer. We do this all the time and would like to have balls that can last a long time and can endure the difficult terrain in the communities.
We’re running this campaign with One World Play Project to raise ultra-durable One World Futbols, soccer balls that never need a pump and never go flat, for families from rural Mexico. From the balls we raise, a ball will be given to every family that participates in the courses we offer.
One World Futbols will last much longer than standard soccer balls — which typically last hours or days before breaking — and will allow the communities to play as long as they want.
Help us make a difference, and support our campaign today!
How You Can Help
Through the Give Balls program, you can buy a One World Futbol for $28 USD that will be given to families in rural Mexico.
Through this campaign, we want to raise more than 100 One World Futbols.
