Socktober invites children to engage with developing world issues through the language they understand best – play!

This year, why not be part of the movement to make a change? Turn this October into Socktober and help sock it to poverty!

Take a look at the Socktober 2020 promo

This 'Socktober' Children are challenged to ‘Sock it to Poverty’ using the international game of soccer. Shooting goals with their own hand-made recycled ‘Sockball’, students will experience how soccer is played in the countries supported by Catholic Mission.
