How We’re Making a Difference
In Ghana, childhood is defined very differently. Children are forced to grow out of their childhood very quickly and some will never have the chance of experiencing “childhood” as we know it. Whether they live on the streets or have to work to support their families, children have little time to rest, play or learn.
DUNK Grassroots — standing for Developing Unity Nurturing Knowledge — gives children from Nima and Jamestown, two of the most deprived communities in Accra, Ghana, the opportunity to play, learn and grow in a safe and healthy environment using sports as a hook.
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 the various DUNK Grassroots sites in Accra.
One World Futbols are needed because the surfaces that children play on are very rough and harsh. Standard soccer balls deflate and become unusable very quickly, which prevents children from playing. One World Futbols will last much longer and will allow the children to play as long as they want and will allow us to keep our programs going.
Help us make a difference, and support our campaign today!
Through this campaign, we raised 0 One World Futbols.
