The Jinta Sport brand has been created to not only offer consumers high quality, well priced sports gear but also to help create a positive change in the world.
As an accredited fairtrade sports brand, the purchase of Jinta Sports products is guaranteed to be child labour free and that the workers involved in the production are treated with dignity and paid living wages.
Furthermore, our fairtrade premiums are used to benefit the communities that we are working with. In Pakistan where our sports balls are made and in India where our sportswear is made, the priority for our workers is to fund educational programs for their children.
Finally, it’s not just children and adults in Pakistan and India who benefit from the purchase of products from the Jinta range.
The purchase of products from the Jinta range helps fund sports programs managed by the Warlpiri Youth Development Aboriginal Corporation on a number of remote communities in Northern Australia
The brand name Jinta is a Warlpiri (Australian Aboriginal tribe based in the Northern Territory) word which means ‘one’ and is generally used to mean ‘winner’. The word is also used in the Warlpiri phrase ‘Jinta-ku-marrarni’, which means coming together, such as playing a game. The name suits because the Warlpiri community use sports to bring the kids together in meaningful activity.
