Every avid sports player have the tools of their trade. A baseball player will have a ball and glove. A football player will have a football. A tennis player will have a racket and a can of balls. An a golf will have a set a clubs and balls.
One of the things we noticed in rural Congo, avid sports player still have a love of the game. But they did not have the tools of the sports.
Even schools did not have sporting equipment. There were no soccer balls, nets, or uniforms. But the students still had a love of the sport. They just improvised.
