Young participants are given cultural and life skills programmes such as English, Portuguese, and computer lessons, as well as environmental education, vocational training, and HIV/AIDS prevention seminars.

” 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“.

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 used not just for food but also for medicines.
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 and recycle 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 also 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 electric vans to help assist in local collections of kit donations.
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.
