and support Development through football
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.
“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”.
“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”.
We believe the power of football can inspire social change worldwide
“When I was the Director of the FIFA football for hope centre in cape coast, Ghana. our partnership with kits for the world at that time was very timely.
We were facing challenges with how to kit our newly created program called the street league.
The street league was a program that targeted 120 boys and girls from the street. it was an opportunity to give life-skills to these vulnerable group as they play their favourite game, football.
kits for the world came to our rescue and the rest was history. i am very grateful to kits for the world for that kind gesture which went a long way to make the program a success . “
AYEKOO kits for the world as we say in Ghana
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.
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.

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.
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 email@example.com . 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.
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 feed back and demonstrate the impact your organisation is having.
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 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.
Kits for the World is a registered charity which means we need the support of good people like you. In the coming years we would like to expand our operations.
To meet objectives we need your support, with one off or monthly donations to help support our expansion.
