ABOUT THE PROJECT
9-year-old James and 12-year-old Jack met Father Vincent Kajoba who was visiting from Mityana, Uganda. He shared pictures and videos of the young boys from his village playing soccer/futbol with balls made from the leaves of banana trees. James and Jack wanted to share their love of the sport and do something to help their Ugandan friends. They started telling their story and selling the banana leaf balls to their friends and family throughout Kansas City. The first shipment sold out immediately, and every few months a new shipment arrives.
100% of the proceeds are sent to Uganda and used to build and maintain a Tilapia pond, providing a rich protein source for the boys and their families. The next project is to establish bee colonies so the village can harvest and sell honey.
