Fair Trade Sports teams up with Project Hope Worldwide

Fair Trade Sports Inc, a company that manufactures sports equipment in the US, has teamed up with Project Hope Worldwide.

In 2011, the company provided soccer balls to an orphanage being built by the Project in Uganda. Many of the first 16 orphans were child soldiers in Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army. They are now being helped to recover their lost childhoods and are taking part in activities like soccer.
