Back in 2010 the concept of Kits for the World was born. The concept of Kits for the World has grown with local grassroots clubs and some forward thinking professional clubs. They all could see the value of helping the projects we support with football kit donations.
Our objectives when we give a football kit donation to a project MUST fit within the sustainability development goals across the range of key objectives. These objectives range from the 17 interlinked global goals designed to be the foundation on which to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
Kits for the World also plays a part in the interlinked global goals. Firstly by one of our core objectives namely playing a part in the post-consumer garment collection, reuse, and recycling is a critical component of a circular economy plan.
Secondly as from 2022 we are actively looking to plant a kits for the world kit donation tree at the clubs who donate to kits for the world. This helps to offset our logistical impact.
We are also actively looking for international partners who are active in the regions where we send our donated kits to who plant trees.
Moving forward It is our intention that new NGO’s who are part of the kits for the world network incorporate an educational fact pack to raise awareness of the benefits of planting a tree locally.
Businesses cannot survive in a climate characterised by poverty, inequality, instability, and environmental stress. By 2030, the SDGs are expected to produce at least US$12 trillion in business potential. This creates a compelling financial case for investors and corporations to invest in opportunities linked with the SDGs.
Kits for the World embraces SDG and our kit donations are directly linked to NGO’s that implement Sustainable development goals

AND KITS FOR THE WORLD
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.
Recirculating quality football kits is a key objective of Kits for the World. These items really help not just the planet but also projects that use the power of football to provide hope and opportunity in some of the world’s most disadvantaged communities. Help us to Help!
Overview of the KITS FOR THE WORLD CONCEPT
As the technology in kit manufacture grows and becomes more sustainable the kits that kits for the world donate will also be part of that improvement as we extend the life of those kits through our network.
Our easy access to re-use kits concept also translates into the projects we send football kits to. This takes the form of kits for the world asking the NGO’s to set-up a kit lending library for the donated kit items. Which intern extends the use of a football kit donation again, by ensuring the football kit get reused at the project.
The goal of Kits for the World
In a circular economy, the value of products, materials and resources is maintained in the economy for as long as possible, and the generation of waste is minimised.
It is within this concept that Kits for the World plays a part.
We can scale up our collection and distribution objectives running on green powered technology as part of our SDG goals.
From local collections powered by green technology through to offsetting transportation by planting trees to offset our carbon foot print.
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”.
Reuse by a new consumer is environmentally the most favourable route for donated football kits. Kits for the World ensures top quality items for the projects we donate kits. Sorted into age groups that are relevant to the needs of the project.
When you out grow your football kit donate it to K4TW. Retailers can also help the cause with stock that is no longer wanted.
Kits for the World’s goals is to support projects that really have a big impact at a local community level. The projects we support use football to engage specific key groups from communities that face challenging circumstances. These projects/ NGO’s have a strong record of helping inspire local change.
These objectives range from the 17 interlinked global goals designed to be the foundation on which to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
