Donate your football kits to help the planet, People & football
When you donate football kits and football boots to charity…through the kits for the world reuse a football kit program. We ensure your football kit donation goes to a charity that has a proven track record of working with sustainable development goals that make a big impact at a grassroots level.
Kits for the World is part of Football for the Goals which is a United Nations initiative that provides a platform for the global football community to engage with and advocate for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Your donation be it football boots or football kits or equipment will provide an extra incentive to the participants of these programs which have the potential to change a life, in a number of ways. Below are some examples of SDG.
WHY DONATE FOOTBALL KITS TO KITS FOR THE WORLD’S REUSE A KIT PROGRAM
Problem: Football kit manufacturers and football clubs occasionally overestimate demand, resulting in surplus inventory. Unsold stock, including older models, can be difficult to manage and may end up in landfills. Also football clubs both professional and amateur change football kits and sponsors on a regular basis, which adds to the growing stockpiles of kits. Sporting goods companies who produce football kits and sports retail brands are increasingly being scrutinised for their environmental practices and corporate social responsibility. Consumers and stakeholders are seeking sustainable and ethical practices from these brands.
Solution: Donate the football kit items to kits for the world . We provide a direct link to projects that use football as a development tool to inspire change in underserved communities through the medium of football. By donating football kits to our charity we extend the life of the items through our kit lending library at the projects we support. Donations that qualify as business expenses (sponsorship, CSR expenses) are deductible.
Clearly donating football kits for reuse is only part of the solution as and when football kit manufacturers start producing biodegradable kits will be a big part to the solution for the environment. Overconsumption is also part of the bigger picture with regards to the impact on the planet. This is where the kits for the world’s reuse a kit program makes an impact, by reusing we ensure the football kit lifespan is extended, Helping projects that make a big difference to communities which are underserved.
Our point of differentiation is we only donate football kits to projects that are a registered charity and have a proven track record in make change happen through the power of football.
In a time when consumers care more about the environmental and social effects of their choices, being transparent is not just the right thing to do but crucial for businesses. This introduction highlights how transparency Kits for the World is and hoping to be a driving force for positive change, promoting trust, accountability, and a more sustainable future for the entire sector.
Donate football kits and football boots to our charity Kits for the World. Founded with the aim of reusing and supplying donated football kits. We help charities that focus on tackling a range of sustainable development goals for disadvantaged children and young adults around the world.
The charities we donate to use a through sports-based approach to help educate children and young adults in countries and communities less fortunate than our own.
Our Vision: is to supply community projects, charities, with the basic football kit items that will help motivate disadvantaged communities to take part in these projects.
Our Goal: is to work with charities that embrace the Sustainable Development Goals who have a clear and proven track record in delivering change within the communities they support.
Our Mission: Re-use and recycle kits to be as sustainable as possible. In all parts of our collection and distribution process our mission is to be as sustainable as possible.
Kits for the World fully supports SDG 13 and is constantly looking for ways to partner with organisations that also have sustainability as a key objective.
“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”.
“Many thanks to Kits for the world for coming to Lyon France to distribute this marvellous assembly of shirts and shorts to the participants of the street world festival 16.
We hope that this kit will go around the world and make boys and girls all over the world happy and enjoy football thank you very much”.
The projects we work with and why support them with football kit donations.
charities that use the power of football
We look for projects that have a number of key elements. These elements are based upon the SDG goals. It is important to Kits for the World that these projects have a good foundation to help make a change. And have the infrastructure to facilitate an impact to a persons life chances.
We donate kits to a number of well established NGO’s and networks that can help to ensure a positive impact. By donating kits to kits for the world we support these projects whereby the cost of kits is mitigated for the NGO .
Which frees up resources for that organisation which in turn can be used more effectively for programs like HIV/AIDS support and education and the advancement of SDG goals and objectives.
“Nothing brings people together like football. This is especially true of children. A football brings together a collective. Yet providing football kit and boots to play in has such a positive empowering effect on each child. Something so small builds confidence and creates a sense of belonging within each child.
Your kind donations influence our children above and beyond what we could ever hope for. Thank you for supporting Whizzkids United to build and develop disadvantaged and vulnerable children in Ghana”.
Good health is essential to sustainable development. Poor health is one of the core issues surrounding socio-economic development. Having programs that tackle SDG3 is an important requirement for Kits for the World
Organisations like Kick 4 Life and Whizzkids United are just some of projects we have supported with kit donations both organisations reach out into the community and provide help and support.
In this picture Kick 4 Life tested for HIV while using football as the catalyst to engage youngsters.
Education is one of the most powerful and proven vehicles for sustainable development. The projects we support have education (SDG 4) as one their core pillars of engagement.
Equal access to education & training is key to eliminate gender and wealth disparities, and achieve universal access to a quality higher education.
To this part Kits for the World support projects that use football as an enabler to support for SDG4.
The core values of team and togetherness help to brake down social barriers creating an open environment.
The special appeal football has and it core values span generations and gender as well as cultures it is one the football pitch a common ground and goal can be found for engaging in a spectrum of social and growth development activities.
The projects we support with football kit donations have as their core foundations social and human development programs that engage these topics through the concept of Development Through Football .
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 INCLUSION IS PUT INTO THE MIX THE COMBINATION BECOMES WORLD CHANGING. THE WORK OF KITS FOR THE WORLD PLAYS A SMALL PART …ACTING AS A LINK IN THE CHAIN OF DEVELOPMENT THROUGH FOOTBALL.
THE REAL WORK TAKES PLACE WITH THE DEDICATED MEN AND WOMEN THAT WORK FOR THE CHARITIES WE SUPPORT WITH KIT DONATIONS. IT IS THERE WHERE THE MOST IMPORTANT WORK HAPPENS. WHEN A CHILD/YOUNG ADULT RECEIVES A FOOTBALL KIT DONATION IT HELPS TO KEEP THE MOTIVATIONAL FIRE ALIGHT AND PROVIDES THE CATALYST FOR CHANGE“.

Kits for the world get a lot of emails requesting kit donations. We would love to give every person and project a kit donation. However as part of our core objectives it is our goal to work with projects that have an established project which uses football as a development tool. And can deliver on a number of SGD Goals. Also Kits for the world does not support football academies with kit donations. Our goal is to help NGO’s and charities that use football to help teach and inspire change in relation to the SDG goals through the medium of football.
To this end we only consider projects that are a registered charity organisation / NGO and is part of an established network. With a track record/ potential to provide services to the local community.
Please Note: Even if your organisation fits our core objectives and goals we can not automatically guarantee you will get a kit donation. We must consider logistical and the available resources we have at the time of your request. To start the process we would ask you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . We will send you a document list as to what we require.
However if your organisation is not a registered charity we will not consider a kit donation.
Again please note if you do qualify for a kit donation, however it is not possible to deliver a kit donation at the time of your request, we will keep your project details on file. We will endeavour to explore ways find a solution.
Kits for the World encourage our partner projects to set-up a Kit Lending Library. The Kit Library works on number levels.
Firstly it helps encourage participants comeback to your project to take part in your team/ sports based activities.
Secondly It full fills our requirement and commitment to the principle of reuse & recycle.
A kit donation is free of charge. As a charity kits for the world fully understand money for a charity is key to its survival. If we can work with logistic partners we can try to send the kit free of charge.
The only requirements we have is the Kit Lending Library system and a commitment to send us a video explaining the objectives of your project and pictures of the kits being put to good use as part of your development through football objectives.
We would also like to receive from your project yearly updates on the progress of your project. This is important to us as we can then provide all our partners with feedback and demonstrate the impact your organisation is having.
As part of our objectives we ask the NGO/ charity to take part in our plant a Kit tree to help bring awareness of the importance trees play in helping the global warming problem.
Kits for the World sdg 13 Commitment to offset a kit donation
Wherever trees are established, wildlife and other plants are sure to follow, ensuring a healthier ecosystem. Trees provide shelter and food for a variety of birds and small animals. Attracting pollinators which in turn help with vegetable and plant growth
Trees are sometimes called the lungs of the Earth because they absorb pollutants through their leaves. Trees improve water quality, and reduce flooding and erosion.
Trees temper climate..trees lower air temperatures and humidity; they can also influence wind speed. Evaporation of water from trees, or transpiration, has a cooling effect.
Kits for the World
Kits for the World is committed to help fighting the issue of climate change. To this end not only do we reuse football kits. We also look for the most sustainable way to transport football kits to our partner projects.
To offset this transaction we also are looking to partner with charities that can help re-green planting trees and forests which play a crucial role in combating climate change and loss of biodiversity.
Kits for the world are also looking to partner with companies of eco-friendly vans to help assist in local collections of kit donations.
Tackling climate change and the loss of biodiversity is one of the key challenges we all face. Raising people’s awareness of the importance of trees – whether close to home or on the other side of the world.
As part of Kits for the World’s objectives we also embrace the aspects of SDG 13 and to this end Kits for the World not only reuse football kits we also encourage projects we support with football kit donations to have SDG13 as part of their awareness objectives when using the power of football to engage and educate.
We hope partner projects help educate and create a better climate awareness education, leading to more biodiversity champions and healthier living conditions for everyone.
