In many African communities, you will see children playing football or rugby in their bare feet on rubble-strewn ground.
Seeing this left us asking what could be done to help. It was obvious to us that those children kicking a ball to each other shared the same passion and love that millions of more fortunate fans have for sport.
This was where the ‘Boots For Africa’ appeal was born.
Boots For Africa (founded by Sheffield FC – The World’s First Football Club) collects pre-loved sports boots & equipment and distributes them to the children and youth of Africa.
The ‘Boots For Africa’ appeal aims to help develop the skills and fitness of disadvantaged children, and provide more children with the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful game.
Make a difference
Your support, however large or small, can make a real difference. Our donated boots may be the first ever pair worn by disadvantaged children and will offer a generation of young people affected by poverty, poor health and lack of opportunity a new sense of hope, pride and ambition for themselves and for their country.
With your help, we can do even better and improve the lives of many more disadvantaged players.
