FOOTBALL KIT DONATION
Youth unemployment is a big issue in some parts of Ghana, exacerbated by the country’s expanding wealth disparities. This has resulted in lower food security and increased levels of teenage criminality in certain areas.
Play Soccer Ghana assists children and young people in 11 different places in Ghana each year through its varied programmes. It also serves as a social clinic for the parents of the participants, instructing them on how to best assist their children.
Play Soccer also offers worldwide leadership for the annual Global Peace Games for Children and Youth, as well as various events and communication exchanges to promote cultural understanding, global friendship, and gender equality.
Stats from the logistics challenge
The Play for Fun, Learn for Life programme is a 48-week curriculum taught by youth volunteer teachers from several areas of Ghana that teaches young people marketable skills, health, and football. Part of the ’20 Centres for 2010′, FIFA’s 2010 World Cup legacy initiative, Kits for the World provided football kits to be used by the Hope Centre to help aid and engage the youth of the district to take part in the Play Soccer programs.
The program is recreational, open to all, and geared to mass participation in the most disadvantaged communities.
Play Soccer is a one-of-a-kind, sports-inspired initiative that equips children and teens to be change agents in the world’s most neglected regions. The Play Soccer programme utilises football as a means to educate health, social, and football skills to children aged 5 to 15 in underserved neighbourhoods. It is an educational programme that encourages growth via athletics, with the tagline Play for fun, learn for life!”

“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
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.
