About the Site:
In partnership with the US State Department and FHI 360, Ragball modified its soccer-based curriculum to be delivered during a week-long soccer-based financial and environmental camp for 74 Djiboutian youth ages 10-18 in February 2015 in Djibouti. The Ragball Djibouti camp was facilitated by three experienced Ragball facilitators from the United States and South Africa.
Findings show the camp was well received by youth, who exhibited increased knowledge and communication on financial and environmental issues. Participants enjoyed playing soccer, making ragballs, and discussing topics related to recycling, saving money, and becoming actively engaged in their communities.
Ragballs are made of:
Recycled newspapers, fruit bags, and plastic shopping bags
