Congolese girls and many women play a competitive game called
Zango, which involves singing, clapping and jumping. Boys play
football (soccer) whenever they have time, a ball and a place to kick it.
Soccer is not just a game; it has the force to unite people, communities
and nations. To the African child, soccer is like second-nature. The
ﬁrst game kids learn is kicking the ball. However, to many of them
kicking a ‘real soccer ball’ remains just a dream. But thanks to African
ingenuity, kids make their own ball by finding anything at their disposal- from plastic bags to rags and twine. Ben & Michelle - Congo
