Pass It On: Turning scraps into soccer balls for village children

In a village outside of Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, this Congolese gentleman crafts found scraps of garbage into a homemade soccer ball. Though the region has been plagued with war, terrorism, and ongoing conflicts for decades, filmmaker Jerome Thelia writes in The New York Times, “…children there still play with passion and joy – regardless of what kind of ball they are using.”
