Using Football to change lives

Football4Africa uses the beautiful game to raise awareness and funds for the Children of Africa. While parent charity Abaana meets their practical needs we wanted to give the kids something fun, and the chance to enjoy life like kids in the west do. All the money raised and shirts collected go straight to those in the poorest parts of the world. Maybe your passion for football could help put a smile on a child's face.
