The world of football becomes closer to Ukrainian NGOs. Ukraine has one more donor within TechSoup Ukraine! It is One World Play Project.
One World Play Project is a donation program which provides soccer balls of high quality to non-profit and charitable organizations around the world. The purpose of this program is to support the community in sports and social development.
About the project
The main product of the project is One World Futbol, an ultra-durable ball to bring the transformative power of play to the hundreds of millions of youth who don’t even have something as simple as a ball.
In 2010, One World Futbol Project was founded as a B Corporation. With the help of Founding Sponsor Chevrolet, the global network of giving partners and Buy One, Give One customers, One World Play Project has distributed over 1 million balls to communities around the world.
The One World Futbol was just the beginning. The impact of efforts showed that the need for a play was something much greater. The play has a critical role in the lives of people all over the world – and where play can take us all tomorrow.
Participation in Technology Assistance Program for Ukrainian Non-Profit Organizations provides access to the football balls for a large number of organizations. Due to these balls football, a game that unites the community, becomes more accessible. Today, more than 48 million young people in more than 175 countries have joined the game through the project.
