Campaign: Ethiopia Reads


Ethiopia Reads

Ethiopia Reads works to provide early education and literacy programs in Ethiopia. [...]

How We're Making a Difference

Bring joy to Ethiopia’s children and support Ethiopia Reads. Help us give the gift of play to the place we love with the ultra-durable One World Futbol.

Ethiopia Reads has successfully worked with Ethiopian communities to provide excellent early education and literacy programs in both urban and rural environments. We’ve developed more than 65 libraries, built 10 schools, partnered with numerous others and trained many teachers from across Ethiopia.

Now, it’s time to have some real fun—and we need your help.

We are working with One World Play Project to raise ball donations for Ethiopia Reads. These amazing, ultra-durable One World Futbols are desperately needed in Ethiopia—a country where children can be seen kicking ragballs through the streets and villages at every turn.

Large-ET-Reads-Logo-300x234One World Futbols give children the chance to play, to live out their dreams of playing in a real soccer game, without the worry of finding a needle or a pump, without the worry of a ball going flat. They only need to engage themselves with the thrill of the kick and the delight of the chase.

Please consider giving the gift of play and freedom—if only for a while—to the children in Ethiopia. All it takes is the purchase of a One World Futbol.
