Give a Ball in Ghana. Get a Ball for Christmas.

Help us to donate 2,000 sports balls to disadvantaged children in Ghana and get an Alive and Kicking football as a special Christmas gift! 

Quality Footballs for 90,000 Children

By donating a ball through Alive and Kicking, you're helping to give an average of 45 children per ball access to a quality sports ball, often for the first time. 

Every ball is donate to a school, football club, youth group or sports club in a disadvantaged community that can't afford equipment. 

Take a look at the recent donations made using funds raised so far:






Help Save Ethical Jobs

By donating an Alive and Kicking football, hand-stitched in Ghana you'll also help to save ethical jobs.

More than 6 million people in Ghana currently live on less than $1 a day, with high levels of casual employment and unemployment keeping families in poverty. 

Our Ghana operation lifts families out of poverty; helping vulnerable individuals to improve their lives by generating sustainable, ethical, fairly paid jobs.

Here's Janet, explaining how Alive and Kicking Ghana is helping her to realise her dream of being a nurse:

Help Support Families

Alive and Kicking employees support an average of 5 dependents; providing food, shelter and school fees for their children, siblings and parents.

Employment at Alive and Kicking Ghana means stability for individuals from vulnerable backgrounds and the loved ones they provide for. 

Here's Moses explaining how employment at Alive and Kicking helps him to support his family:

Alive and Kicking is an award-winning charity operating in Ghana, Kenya and Zambia. We create ethical employment opportunities through the manufacture of sports balls, fund vital health outreach programmes and donate much needed, much loved, sport balls to children across Africa.
