CAC's Soccer in the Sand Campaign Page
Coaches Across Continents (CAC), international non-profit organization, are in partnership with Soccer in the Sand. Soccer in the Sand will be supporting CAC globally with a particular focus on CAC’s partnership with the Horn of Africa Development Initiative (HODI) in Northeastern Kenya which uses soccer to promote human rights with marginalized populations in the area. For instance, HODI aim to address female genital mutilation (FGM) in a region in which 98% of girls are victims, often before the age of 5. The CAC program with HODI uses soccer to give local leaders the capacity to challenge harmful traditions and cultures such as FGM and create an environment in which these practices are eliminated.
Soccer in the Sand and CAC want to give you the opportunity to donate directly to this impactful campaign by simply making a donation on this page. It is easy, fast and secure. Please make a donation and help to create social change globally through the game we all love so much.
Alongside this, Soccer in the Sand will be donating $1 to this CAC program for every pair of socks sold at their beach soccer series tournaments across the US in 2015. So if you are attending a Soccer in the Sand tournament this year you will get another chance to create social change through the sport by purchasing soccer socks. By making a donation here or by buying socks you are helping to address a dangerous practice which goes against the UN rights of the child and making a difference in communities in which FGM is most prevalent.
