Thank you for taking time to share in our exciting new initiative Socktober!

You’re invited you to develop Socktober in your school or club and help ‘Sock it to Poverty’.
Register your school or club and we’ll be in touch with an Information Pack.

How to get involved

If you have any questions, please contact, or your local Diocesan Director.

Step 1:

Make sure your school is registered for Socktober – check with your Principal or appropriate staff member. If you haven’t yet registered click here to do so, or contact

Set your school’s Socktober Day.

Step 2:

Check out the resources from Catholic Mission, including the online materials on this site, and use resources to teach children about Ghana, how to make a ‘Sockball’ and why their support, advocacy and prayers are important.

Encourage students to practise their goal kicking, and to reach out to their family and friends to raise money.

Step 3:

Hold your Socktober/Mission Day!
