Futbol Friends International is non-profit organization in Connecticut, run by volunteers, with a simple goal: to connect soccer-loving kids (and adults) here in the U.S. with kids around the world who lack the basic gear to play the game.
The main way FFI does that is to find trusted partners around the world who can identify local needs in villages and towns, and buy the equipment locally, in the country where it is needed, rather than buying it here and paying to have it shipped. That makes funds go much further. That said, FFI is open to projects of all kinds.
FFI then help kids (and adults) in the U.S. raise funds for those projects, in a wide variety of ways. FFI also seeks out grants from charitable institutions to help further its work.
We are always looking for volunteers who have time and energy or simply an idea to contribute, and most importantly, fundraisers of all ages!
