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!Learn more →
It has started with an idea to create the world’s first mini football for blind children.
We want to send balls to each country in the world. We have reached 149 countries.
Helping to empower blind children's dreams through sport and education.
We know that our ball is not just a ball, it is a tool to transform the world for blind kids and their families.
We appreciate the help you can provide to A Ball for All. Our ball brings a lot of joy. Our campaign brings people together, and blind children need that.
Do you know anyone who needs a ball? Are you interested in sponsoring a blind child, school or specific country? Let us do it together!
A potential benefactor has a variety of choices for how to support the International Campaign, with a personalized logo printed on the ball.

Youthorama was founded in 2003 as a meeting place for young people between 13 and 30 years old. In addition to fostering a community environment for adolescents and young adults, it implements chess workshops for children between 4 and 14 years old. The activities of Youthorama have been hosted and supported since then by the Municipality of Pilea-Hortiatis, Greece. In the youth field, we have organized and participated in dozens of European programs supported by both the European Commission Erasmus + and the Council of Europe. In recent years, especially through our #ABallforAll campaign, we have focused on integrating young people with fewer opportunities through sport. We are fighting for a better future and world.
A Ball for All
Youthorama, launching the #ABallforAll campaign, set a goal to travel to all corners of the earth to distribute these special balls. We are well on our path for the balls to reach even the most remote areas. With your support we will achieve even more and the ball will ring in every blind child’s home and school around the world. This year, the first fairy tale "A Ball For All" was published, our heroes are very determined to make the world a better place!
