The Jabuji World Cup 2014 Charity Challenge launched 12th June 2014, the first day of the World Cup 2014. It is a nationwide challenge for women’s and girls’ FA county and Women’s Super League football, raising awareness and/or money for Brazil’s wildlife and rainforests. It is organised by Voices for Nature with the support of She Kicks.
Across the whole of the UK, women’s and girls’ teams are invited to host charity matches during the World Cup 2014, 12th June- Sunday 13th July 2014. They provide the opportunity for the UK’s women teams and fans to be part of the excitement and fun of world class football and at the same time support Brazil’s precious rainforest and wildlife.
The Jabuji Challenge supports:
• The World Land Trust, a charity which has rainforest conservation projects in Brazil’s Atlantic Rainforest near Rio de Janeiro, through Regua, its local partner.
• Durrell Wildlife Conservation, a charity which supports endangered species, including those which live in Brazil’s rainforest with a special project in Manaus, Brazil.
• Isle of Wight zoo, which rehouses unwanted wild animals, including those from Brazil’s rainforest.
Teams may enter for one or both categories:
1. Fundraising for the charities named above
2. Dressing up ‘on the wild side’ with a rainforest-themed appearance
Oxford United Women’s Football Club have entered both categories. Visitors to the match are invited to make donations at the gate.
The results of the winners in both categories will be announced on 31st July 2014.
