Discovered a couple of videos while doing some research on the game of soccer in Africa. The first video shows either soccer balls so beat up they would have been long discarded here in the states or "soccer balls" brought to life out of scraps. The absolute joy and passion these kids have for the game is just awesome!


Shows the hope and joy the game can bring. I'm sure at least one name will look familiar;)

Looking forward to the day that same type of joy and passion for the game is commonplace in the states.

Great videos! I remember when I was a little kid in wartorn Bosnia our soccer balls looked a whole lot like the torn up ones.
