Timothy Project: One World Futbol, Play On....And On...

Nov 30, 2017

Timothy Project: Soccer Chaplains United has packaged and delivered soccer gear around the world, again and again.  Sometimes the gear goes to small, remote villages that are not represented on a map, other times the gear is distributed in cities with too many people to count.  Regardless of what we send, with whom we send it or to where it is going, we try to include at least a few One World Futbols.

One World Play Project is a B Corporation founded in 2010 by a man passionate to provide disadvantaged people around the world with the gift of play, more specifically play that does not deflate in the harsh environments of refugee camps, thorny vegetation, and glass-ridden playing fields.

One World Play Project has developed an indestructible futbol (soccer ball) that is capable of withstanding the harshest environments.  The ball can be punctured, driven over by a vehicle or weather any storm and still reinflate for play.

“The One World Futbol was just the beginning. The impact of our efforts showed us that the need for play was something much greater. We discovered play’s critical role in the lives of people all over the world—and where play can take us all tomorrow.”

Play is in our DNA—a need as important as food, medicine, and shelter. It’s an intrinsic part of our lives, regardless of geography or culture, and through play, we become stronger individuals, build better communities and create a more positive future,” One World Play Project website.

Soccer Chaplains United is honored to be able to include One World Futbols with our soccer gear donations.  To date more than 1.8 million balls have been donated/distributed to over 175 countries which has impacted an estimated 54 million youth.  (https://twitter.com/oneworldplayprj/status/921438327814815744)
