Hi all. I volunteer with The One Goal (link in headline). We raise money for causes relating to Women’s Football by selling, auctioning or raffling off match-worn items donated from Women’s Professionals.
Here’s what we’re doing with this campaign:
“This time in partnership with Dear Football – a Danish charity supporting football projects in African countries. Our latest campaign #ShirtsForGirls aims to raise money for El Cambio Academy, a girls’ football academy in Uganda.
The girls’ football programme has been set up at El Cambio Academy to demonstrate that girls can and will get the same opportunities as boys to play sports, including football. Many African girls would love to be a part of a football community, but currently do not have the opportunity. We can help change this, with the ultimate goal of changing the perception of African girls’ place in both sport and society.
The funds raised from this campaign will be used for an education programme, school equipment, medical care, accommodation, football training and the overall character development of girls who attend the academy.
El Cambio has one goal: to build self-worth and strong characters. They want their players to enjoy life and be able to achieve their dreams.”
