Help Save Ethical Jobs
Donate an Alive and Kicking football, hand-stitched in Ghana today and 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.
