DONATION TO SUPPORT
ABOUT V.V. SVI
Sports association Ittersum was founded on August 28, 1952 as a football association. For the sake of convenience, the first year of the association was concluded on September 1, 1953, and this is probably how we arrive at the official founding date of September 1, 1952. Later on, more sports were added gradually.
In 1954 SVI became champion for the first time and therefore promoted from the 3rd class to the 2nd class of the Zwolle department. In the same year, SVI became an omni association because, in addition to football, a volleyball department was also established.
SVI is today (one of) the largest football associations in Zwolle and the surrounding area with more than 1300 members.
In addition to field football, SVI also has an indoor football branch, in which several teams are active for both men and women.
DONATION TO VV SVI FOR THE KIDS COURT
About the VV SVI KIDS COURT PROJECT
VV SVI are part of the Kits for the World network. And are a shining example of how a grassroots club supports the local community. VV SVI is without question one of the main focal points for the community. Supporting a whole range of projects from support for the elderly community with a specially designed exercise park through to helping disabled groups access sport.
The SVI Kids Court offers children a safe place to play, with a special focus on charitable and community projects for example for children with disabilities. The Kids Court also offers more space for youth teams to play football.
About the Kids Court
The KidsCourt working group received the green light from the board for the realisation of a kids court on the site of the old playground. The field will have a size of 32 by 22 meters and will be fenced with fences and ball catchers.
The Kids-court will have to reduce the pressure with regard to competition capacity and training opportunities on the current fields. In addition, it offers space for numerous social goals.
Since the costs for this project cannot be borne by vv SVI alone, VV SVI called on the support of sponsors, members and third-party funds.
The goal of Kits for the World
Kits for the World was happy to support this project with a donation of 300 euros. Supporting projects like this is part of our local (Netherlands) objectives.
It is the intent of Kits for the World to also support a whole range of projects locally that benefit the wellbeing of the local community.
We believe that having healthy and active youngsters helps to benefit local communities and the kids court project provides a focal point for every one which includes those who have issues engaging in physical activity.
Sustainable Development Goals
V.V SVI are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals – 3: Good Health & Wellbeing, 5: Gender Equality.
When we set-up Kits for the World our goal is to reach as many projects that use the power of football for social good. Projects that use football to provide hoped and opportunity.
The SVI project is an outstanding example that combines a number of these elements offering all the local community the opportunity to engage in sports.
SVI is part of the Kits for the World network we will always try to support local network projects as best we can. And the SVI kids court project is a good example of that.
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 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
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.
