The Great Football Giveaway

The Great Football Giveaway is football's feelgood film of the year. An extraordinary tale of a man who gives up everything to give away footballs to children across Africa. What starts as a simple idea to take a bag of balls to Malawi, turns into an epic journey through 5 countries across Africa with over 15,000 footballs to hand deliver direct to some of the world's poorest children. Paul Clarke, founder of The Great Football Giveaway, encounters extreme poverty in Malawi, landmines in Angola, confronts the effects of genocide and meets child soldiers in Rwanda, and smuggles balls across the border into war-torn Congo. This is a journey of discovery, not just in the opportunity for sport to make a difference but in Paul's own belief and conviction that a simple idea can have huge impact on children's lives, no matter what the circumstances.
