|Five children from Kigoma, Tanzania, village where refugee camps have
Life in a refugee camp can be very difficult, especially for children. Soccer
(known as football in other parts of the world) is a welcome diversion at the
Lufugu refugee camp in Tanzania. The boys and girls enjoy playing but they often
have to resort to making the soccer balls out of materials they find around
the camp. The cost of a high-quality, long-lasting soccer ball is $24. If you
and your group want to help, you can raise the money needed to buy soccer balls
and give children some temporary relief from refugee life.
If you decide to raise money for this project, you can write a check to the
Jane Goodall Institute and send it to the address provided below. Be sure to
note on the check that your funds are going to the refugee children soccer project.
