Boots2Africa 

The Global Game Boots2Africa

Levelling The Playing Field

SOLUTION


Boots2Africa collects, transports and distributes donated boots to Africa's children and young adults through relief organisations.  A voluntary donation back to the organisation may be made by parents, guardians or organisations to help with and recognise overhead costs and encourage sustainable regional economic growth.  

NEED


Millions of children across Africa, have no shoes, for school, life and playing games.  Disease, infections and snakebites kill thousands and injure and incapacitate many others every year.  Many others struggle physically and needlessly because of illness caused from infections of the foot. 

OPPORTUNITY


Thousands of children in the United Kingdom, Europe and other first world countries, discard their football boots at the end of each playing season.  Most boots are adaptable to life in bush towns and urban settlements.  Boots2Africa overheads are met by financial donations and the sale of high quality boots not suitable for use;  fundraising events and the sale or raffle of high value 'ex professional' sportswear also contributes to the funding.
