We would like to point out that without the fantastic support of our official collection partners this project and many more future projects would not be possible.
This project has seen us hit a number of logistical and financial challenges as well as personal challenges, which we over came with the help of a few special people that work for organisations which understood our concept and share our vision. Thank You All!
A quote from the center:
"The Oguaa football for Hope in Cape Coast, Ghana will be more than willing to be a delivery destination of your kits. This will go a long way in helping us to implement our programs at the centre. Please if there is further information you are seeking let me know. Looking forward to a very rewarding relationship with Kits for the World. Thanks!"

About PLAYSOCCER Ghana
The program begins with young children to encourage early childhood development and lifelong learning. Local youth are trained as volunteer instructors, building their leadership and skills, maximizing volunteerism and community service as pillars of the organization.
The programme is recreational, open to all, and geared to mass participation in the most disadvantaged communities.
PLAY SOCCER also provides international leadership for the annual Global Peace Games for Children and Youth and collaborates on other activities and communications exchange to encourage cultural understanding, global friendship and gender equality.
In regions where access to organized recreational sports is scarce for children, PLAY SOCCER offers communities an opportunity to develop themselves through football and education.

Mission: To promote the health and social development of children and youth through community-based activities, with the sport of soccer serving as the foundation of the program.
