I would like to go back to Ethiopia and provide children with football equipment. After Going to Ethiopia as a child it was amazing to see how much the children over there love football, Most of them play it every day and are so passionate about it. They support teams from all around the world and lots of them are very skilled in the game and will put every effort in to playing. Unfortunately they do not have any equipment, We went to one village that had a football but other than that it was all homemade footballs, normally made out of rags tied up into a ball shape. We managed to buy a group of children a football while we were out there and the joy on all of there faces and the happiness it brought to that group of children was so amazing that as a child I thought 'how nice would it be to do this for as many children as we could across the country'. Now eleven years on I would like to go back and try and provide as many children with the tools and equipment they need to follow their passion and dreams. All money raised will go towards the football equipment, This will Include footballs, assorted training equipment, goals and items to maintain the equipment. travel and accommodation to be payed for by myself.
Thanks for reading and all donations will be helping a good cause.
