Team up with SOS Children's 6 Villages for 2006 campaign and score a Hat Trick!

03/03/2006

Three good reasons to get on board with the official charity campaign of the FIFA World Cup:

  • Have football-themed fun whilst raising awareness and funds for our world wide work

  • Opportunity to improve physical ability, encourage teamwork and leadership

  • Gain understanding of global citizenship through international language of football

By teaming up with SOS Children’s football-themed fundraising programme, schools are presented with a positive and timely medium through which pupils can direct their energies. By organising and participating in an array of activities, pupils will enhance their personal development and physical skills through leadership, fair play and shared goals, within the framework of a global focus.

Team up with SOS Children's

National Keepy Uppy Challenge

The aim of the challenge is to raise awareness and funds for SOS Children’s “6 Villages for 2006” campaign whilst at the same time encouraging children to improve their ball and reflex skills, team work, and encourage participation in sport.

The challenge offers schools and clubs an excellent opportunity to use the World Cup for educational purposes. By learning about SOS Children and the countries in which we work, pupils can develop a greater understanding of the world around them, reinforcing the part they play within the global community. Schools raising over £240 can opt to become a village sponsor, creating the opportunity for an international link with an SOS School.
