Sustainable Development Goals and Sport!

Sport and Football in particular, can help building a peaceful and better world through sport and the Olympic ideal. Upon the transition to the SDGs, the role that sports can play in the realisation of the global goals is becoming increasingly recognised. Links can be established between each of the SDGs and sports. 

Among the most intricately connected are Goals 3 (Good Health and Wellbeing), 4 (Quality Education), 5 (Gender Equality), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), 10 (Reduced Inequalities), 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions) and 17 (Partnerships)

The projects we support focus on a range of issue from supporting orphans and vulnerable children, conflict resolution, cultural awareness, gender equality and empowerment through education, HIV/AIDS prevention and support. 

The charities we support use football as a development tool which acts like a magnet to help engage people and introduce them to education in countries less fortunate than our own, where the basic levels of education and health awareness are desperately needed.

In 2009/10 we launched the K4TW concept by working in cooperation with grassroots and professional football clubs, Sport brands and retail outlets throughout Europe. We are activity looking for partners to work with KiTs for the World and expand the values of development through football.

Our Vision

One kit can change a life!

” When a football kit is given to a child/ young adult, who loves the game with a passion the ripple effect of that and the power football has to inspire is a powerful combination.

However when education and social direction and Aids prevention is put into the mix the combination becomes world changing.

The work of Kits for the World  is just a small part, the real work takes place with the dedicated men and women that work for the  charities.

It is there where the most important work happens. When a child/young adult receives a kit donation it helps to keep the motivational fire alight and provides the catalyst for change “.

Our Purpose

The purpose of KiTs for the World is to help create lasting and sustainable supply of basic kit items whereby poverty prevents these items being used. To achieve this in a way that has little impact on the planet.

In addition, are purpose is to support a movement for change, one that empowers people to create a future that is without the lack of education and awareness in the hope that one day all will be free from poverty.

Working together

K4TW works with affiliates with diverse backgrounds, all dedicated to the achievement of our purpose and seeking maximum impact by building on their respective strengths.

By working closely together, we will provide a clear and consistent approach across the world, and will enhance our collective impact, our cost effectiveness, and will contribute to a just world without unnecessary levels of poverty and lack of education and awareness

Raising awareness

With our network of clubs and contacts we can help promote awareness at sporting events helping to highlight issues and raise awareness. We also raise funds to support projects that our in our network.

Many of the children have nothing but the clothes they wear, so giving them a football shirt is a big deal, but it also acts as an incentive to get and stay involved with our activities which have the potential to change their lives for the long-term. Many thanks to KiTs for the World and to all the clubs who donated the kits – your efforts are hugely appreciated and are making a real difference”.
