How This Helps
Children in extreme poverty or children who have lost their parents are often deprived of the right to play. Your gift can bring joy to a child and provide countless hours of fun.
Soccer is the most popular sport in the world with virtually universal appeal among children and young people. But for children from difficult economic and social backgrounds, the charismatic appeal of soccer goes far beyond the realm of just sport. Soccer offers the possibility of escaping from depressing circumstances.
Team sports like soccer can help foster strong social skills, an understanding of the importance of fair play and teamwork. Hours on the soccer field can bring out talent and can create opportunities. Playing soccer improves co-ordination and emotional development, and can sow the seeds of hope.
When you buy a soccer ball through SOS Charity Gifts, you are supporting SOS Children’s Villages Family Strengthening Programs in: Central America, South America, Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Former Soviet Union, South Africa, Central Africa, Western Africa, Eastern Africa and in the Middle East.
These representative gifts will provide SOS Children’s Villages with the financial means to empower someone in the world who truly needs our help. We will use your gift where it will have the greatest impact in making lasting positive change, and will utilize your donation where the need is greatest.
Each soccer ball is purchased in the region where it is needed the most. SOS Children’s Villages ensures that its Family Strengthening Programs have the resources and/or training needed to ensure the provision of soccer balls. When more soccer balls are given than a community needs, SOS Children’s Villages will ensure that your gift will provide similar assistance to people in different communities or will be used to meet additional needs in that same project.
