Our Goals

The Million Kicks Challenge aims

  • To achieve 1 million kicks a globally through individuals groups and teams performing football keep-uppies (football juggling)
  • To raise £1million directly for charities and NGO’s working directly with the refugees
  • To collect and deliver footballs, football shirts and clothing to the refugees in partnership with host governments and NGO’s working in the camps
  • To deliver capacity building and development programmes for the refugees with academic partners and NGO’s working in the camps.

The Campaign

The Million Kicks Challenge mobilises individuals, communities, governments, the corporate sector and academic institutions to take part with the main aim of raising money for charities and non-governmental organisations in order to help ease the suffering the refugees and IDPs, through a series of football-based initiatives, starting in London, United Kingdom.

The campaign is non-political and non-religious with the sole aim of supporting the refugees regardless of their ethnic, religious or social backgrouns.

All donations will go directly to the charities through online fundraising platforms.

Our current campaign is in aid of Syria Relief, to raise fund for artificial limbs clinics and mobile dental units. For more information please visit

The Facts

  • The Syria conflict is the worst humanitarian crisis of our time
  • The conflict in Iraq has been ongoing since 2003, with no hope of it ending in the near future.
  • Over 11 million people killed or fleeing their home
  • Refugees and Internally Displaced People (IDP) total over 7 million people, that is equal to the population of London. Majority of refugees are living in camps in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan and Iraqi Kurdistan

Syria Relief


#StepForwardSyria aims to shine a light on the plight of an estimated 30,000 Syrian amputees whose conditions have resulted from the conflict. In addition to the loss and trauma that comes from being in the midst of a war situation, amputee victims are additionally burdened with facing a life of complete dependence, leading to the vast majority experiencing extreme feelings of depression and worthlessness. Tragically, many of these victims are infants and children.

Syria Relief has been helping wounded civilians to regain their mobility and rebuild their lives since early 2013, supporting the National Syrian Project for Prosthetic Limbs (NSPPL) comprising of 3 clinics (1 mobile and 2 permanent) located in Turkey and inside Syria. The state of the art limbs fitted at the clinics have enabled the vast majority of the patients to resume their lives once again and to work and play. Over the past 3 years, the prosthetic limbs clinics have successfully fitted over 1,000 prosthetic limbs on patients ranging from 9 months to 85 years old.

With your support, we hope to raise the much-needed funds to ensure that this project will remain fully functional for another year and continue to provide a high quality full care package from pre-op to aftercare free of charge.

“Until they can walk out of our clinics by themselves, ‘standing on their own two feet’, we don’t want to have to send back a single amputee who comes through our doors” – Syria Relief

Step by Step

Our target goal of £150,000 will cover the cost of the clinic for one year and indirect costs associated with the project.
