What better way to foster team spirit and friendship than with handmade, fair trade soccer balls? Afghan women have been renowned for centuries for hand needlework. Now the women of DOSTI, meaning "friendship" in Dari, have harnessed that heritage to handcraft club-quality fair trade soccer balls. Each ball is sturdily hand-stitched using 32 panels of highest quality synthetic leather producing soccer balls with superior bounce and shape. Bearing DOSTI's signature Doves in Flight pattern, each fair trade soccer ball purchased provides meaningful employment for Afghan women. DOSTI is a Bpeace project.

Quality soccer ball

By yoderr created on 29-Jul-13

Great ball to play with. Only negative is that it loses air and goes flat after 5 or so days.

Global Goods Response:
Oh no! This shouldn't be happening! Please contact customer service at info@globalgoodspartners.org so we can ship you a new ball!

Let the healing continue...

Football For Peace

FIVE STARS TO THE WOMEN OF AFGHANISTAN! The women of Afghanistan should be praised and offered the contract to make all of the footballs for the next FIFA Women's World Cup! A quality product produced by workers earning a fair wage. A win-win for all!

Global Goods Response:
We would love to see our Soccer Balls at the FIFA Women's World Cup! That would be a big win for Fair Trade!
