Most American youth playing sports these days are lucky enough to
play on well-maintained fields and with the best and latest sports
gear. Children in the southeast African nation of Malawi, among the
world's least developed and most densely populated countries, aren't so
fortunate. Malawan children face many adversities, including poverty,
disease, and low life expectancies. Opportunities to play sports, much
less with the right equipment, are few and far between.
