Each banana leaf soccer ball is hand woven by a member of the Kabano Bakyala Herbal Association of Ssanje — a local women’s group that comes together to produce handcrafted items such as soap, herbal Vaseline, beaded necklaces, traditional banana leaf soccer balls and more, to sell in the Ssanje Trading Center. The profits they make from sales of these handcrafts primarily go to school fees for their children. Children of Uganda supports these remarkable women by sharing their beautiful Ugandan handicrafts with the global market place. Children in Uganda love to play soccer with these one of a kind creations.
Each soccer ball is about 5″ in diameter, but since each is one-of-a-kind, dimensions vary.
