Futbol For Kids

About:
Futbol For Kids aims to collect and deliver soccer balls directly into the hands (or feet) of disadvantaged kids all over the world.

Mission/Philosophy:
“To deliver as many soccer balls to underprivileged kids as possible. No kid should be denied the chance to kick a ball about. It’s one of life’s most simple pleasures.”

Where they work:
Futbol For Kids recently went to Honduras and is already making plans for a bigger visit to Honduras in 2012.

Why soccer?:
Something as simple as a soccer ball can unlock so much…

As a kid “play” is key. Play enables kids to interact but also puts aside the stress in their lives.

What they do:
Besides distributing soccer balls to kids in need, Futbol For Kids also delivers water filters and solar flashlights.

One of the key problems in many areas is the lack of clean drinking water, thousands of kids each year die, or get seriously sick from drinking dirty water. Solar flashlights are also important. Many families still use kerosene and this results in many burns to young children. Many families don’t have electricity and need the flashlights at night time to protect their homes especially from animals attacking their livestock, which is important to their livelihood.
