'One For One' Football
PARK started the Pass-a-ball Project: a 'one for one' football program that sees one ball donated for every PARK ball purchased.
When you buy a ball, we pass another to a kid in need around the world. It's our way of levelling the playing field. All through a simple act: You buy one. We donate one.
Who does it support?
PARK partners with charities and organisations that want to level the playing field. These initiatives benefit refugees/asylum seekers, at-risk youth, abandoned children and girls around the world.
Goal: Reduce inequality
Football has proven itself as the global game that unites diverse cultures while creating hope and opportunity for the world’s most marginalised. It showcases ability and potential. All you need is a ball, making football the most suitable tool for tackling inequality, even in the most remote of areas across the globe.
Goal: Achieve gender equality
For many women and girls across the globe, football has allowed them to reimagine who they are and what they can do. From improved self confidence to learning leadership skills and embracing teamwork, football provides common ground to tackle gender stereotypes and harness your true potential.
Goal: Promote well-being
Sport is widely recognised as a necessity to leading a healthy lifestyle, protecting individuals from a range of poor health outcomes. Beyond physical wellbeing, football can also promote positive mental wellbeing through physical activity and communal connection.
One million games
Since launching, PARK has passed over 10,000 balls to kids all over the world. Based on insights from our partners, PARK balls are used 4 times a week and last on average 6 months. That means the average ball starts about 100 games in its lifetime.
100 x 10,000 = 1,000,000 games
