Empowerment of the world’s children through the world language of football.




[əm·pou·ər·mənt] NOUN:

the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights.




   To equip, elevate, and empower.


Soccer2Unite provides the necessary equipment, support and education of the world’s game to the world’s children. Beginning in eastern Africa, we use soccer as a platform for cooperative growth and personal development.




Raising three soccer-playing boys of her own as a single mother, Founder Suzanne Fortune knew how much the game meant to her kids. When a good friend shared pictures of African children smiling while kicking a ball around, she knew immediately that she wanted to help. On that day, Soccer2Unite was born.

We are a non-profit organization that leverages the gift of soccer to empower underprivileged children from around the world. Since 2013, Suzanne and her team of volunteers have visited the Ugandan cities of Kabale and Kampala to bring hundreds of pounds of football gear and work with children at several local orphanages and schools. It was here that our foundation was formed… and our story continues to be written.

We have gone from simply supplying shoes, to developing football training and distribution programs that are helping create a world in which every child is empowered to grow in mind and soul.

Make a difference – get involved!

We can't do it alone, and everyone can play a critical part in transforming lives.
