Let them play and learn: blind football for kids

We all love football

Blind children can’t see a ball, but they can hear it! We designed a special ball that jingles so that all children can play with it. It is remarkable to see kids play together with this ball. And most importantly, this ball is not for sale - it can only be donated. Will you help us?

Blind football is a Paralympic sport

Footballs for blind adults are available on the market, but they are too heavy for a child; they weigh more than a half of a kilogram. Elias Mastoras, the founder of Youthorama NGO, created the world’s first mini football for blind children. This lightweight football, designed with bells inside for audible tracking, is unavailable in stores. It can only be donated to blind or visually impaired children, or young people and their schools. Together we can improve their lives!

A few facts about visual impairment

Blindess in numbers

Worldwide, 285 million people are visually impaired; 39 million are blind and 246 million have low vision. An estimated 500 000 children become blind each year, but in developing countries up to 60% are thought to die within a year of becoming blind.

How blindness starts

Some people have been completely blind since birth, while others may have dealt with a slowly declining vision for decades. The millions of people who are blind or visually impaired all possess varying degrees of sight and have vastly different needs and abilities related to their sight loss.

Guide dog

Only 1-2% of visually impaired use a guide dog even though the majority of dogs are provided free of charge. These service animals are carefully trained to lead their owners around other people and obstacles. The first guide dog was issued in 1916 to a blinded veteran, Paul Feyen.

White cane

James Biggs of Bristol claimed to have invented the white cane in 1921. After an accident claimed his sight, the artist had to readjust to his environment. Feeling threatened by increased motor vehicle traffic around his home, Biggs decided to paint his walking stick white to make himself more visible to motorists.


Being diagnosed as blind or partially sighted does not mean that a a person has to give up on sports. In fact, there are many sports which have been adapted for those who are blind or partially sighted, as well as entirely new sports only open to people with a sight condition.

Famous Blind People

Andrea Bocelli has been completely blind at age 12, one of the most successful musicians of all time. On May 25, 2001, Erik Weihenmayer became the first blind person to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Marla Runyan is the first legally blind athlete to compete in the Olympics. Trischa Zorn, blind since birth, has won 55 medals, making her the most successful athlete in the history of the Paralympic Games.
