This is a Charity that I personally support since my two children have played
and have learned and grown from the sport of soccer.

Inspired by Refugee Youth
In 2006, One World Futbol inventor Tim Jahnigen was watching news footage about traumatized refugee youth in Darfur playing soccer on dirt using a ball they had made by tying trash together with twine. In that instant, Tim saw that these kids had such strong, indestructible spirits and felt they deserved better. He realized there was a global need for a nearly indestructible ball that could withstand the harsh conditions often faced by youth living in refugee camps, disaster areas and other disadvantaged communities.
With that spark of inspiration, the idea for the One World Futbol was born.
Support from Sting
With a concept and material in mind, Tim set out to design a ball that played like a soccer ball, but would never need a pump and never go flat—even when punctured multiple times. His idea remained in the concept stage until a conversation with his friend world‐renowned entertainer Sting. Once Sting heard Tim’s vision for the ball, he provided the initial funding to do the research and development for a prototype of the One World Futbol.
In recognition of Sting’s crucial, early support, the name of the ball and the Company are based on the song “One World (Not Three),” written by Sting.
Launch of One World Futbol Project
After much testing and refinement, the One World Futbol was finally ready for launch. In 2010, Tim and his wife, Lisa Tarver, started One World Futbol Project, a mission-driven, B Corporation that makes, sells and distributes the nearly indestructible One World Futbol. The company’s mission is to make a meaningful impact on youth around the world through the One World Futbol.
From that initial moment of inspiration through today, the nearly indestructible One World Futbol has now reached more than 160 countries, bringing the joy and healing power of play to millions of children worldwide.
