Soccerball Packaging

South Korean design firm Unplug Design has developed a concept to deliver footballs (soccerballs) to poor children in third world countries who don’t have the resources or means to purchase their own. The Dream Ball design overlays patterns onto aid packages, such that children can build their own footballs through reuse of the cardboard.

Unplug Design explains the concept below:

To the children in The Third World; Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Somalia, Congo and etc, who can’t enjoy football freely because of poverty, war and natural disaster, having a football means a lot and can be a dream and hope to escape from their poor life.

However, the children are so poor that they can not buy a football. So, they play football with the ball made of plastic bag or coconut palm leaves, therefore giving them their own footballs which can give them hope. This is our aim for this project.

This is an interesting concept, but we have to wonder how practical it really is. Noted football icon Pele, grew up in similar circumstances and made due with rags and grapefruits to master his skills. Thoughts?
