Adversity breeds ingenuity.
In many places around the world, a manufactured soccer ball is unaffordable and unobtainable. But this doesn't stop young people from playing the game they love. Instead, enterprising young people use locally available materials to make their own ragballs to play soccer with. In Khayelitsha, South Africa, our crafters make ragballs from recycled newspaper, plastic bags, and fruit bags.
No two ragballs are the same. They are unique to their communities and their crafters.
Visit our Ragball Museum to see ragballs we've come across in places such as Rwanda, Ukraine, Congo, and Turkey!
