How We’re Making a Difference
The organization we support provides education at a total of four schools in two cities in Ethiopia. There are more than 640 children, young students and adults, with enrollment increasing each school year. One school complex is in Ambo, 120 km west of the capital city of Addis Abeba; the other is in the town of Tokke Jawi, near the border to Sudan, about 450 km west of Addis Abeba.
Children and adults in Ethiopia love to play soccer. During the last two years, we brought them non-durable soccer balls that were soon damaged while the children and youth played on the rough, rocky playing field.
Last year, we tried out the One World Futbol with much success. Now, it is our goal to bring many more of these ultra-durable soccer balls to the children at these schools.
We’re running this campaign with One World Play Project to raise One World Futbols for children and adults at schools in Ethiopia. The One World Futbols raised through this campaign will be used in recreational games of soccer and in the physical education classes, as well as in sports clubs.
Help us make a difference, and support our campaign today!

Through this campaign, we want to raise more than 100 One World Futbols.
