is a basic need
We provide hope to the orphaned and vulnerable children of Uganda through the vehicles of soccer and education.
Fields of Dreams Uganda believes that the power of sports in a child’s life can make a lasting impact, and often a quality education is the only thing that can lift a child out of poverty.
The Banana-leaf Ball
The banana-leaf ball is the symbol of Fields of Dreams Uganda. Children throughout Uganda love playing soccer, but most cannot afford or do not have access to a real soccer ball. So they improvise. They start with a balled up grocery sack and wrap it with leaves from a banana tree or whatever resources they have available. For Fields of Dreams Uganda, the banana-leaf soccer ball represents the innovation, imagination and creativity of children.
