Complete your school’s Mission Day with a Socktober Shootout
Create your sockballs and get ready for a challenging and eye-opening experience. Check out our resources to help your students enquire more deeply about the reality of children in Ethiopia and around the world.
How to make your own sockball
Before kicking your goals, check out our step-by-step guide on how to make a recycled sockball, with Catholic Mission's Dorothy Makasa. Many children in Ethiopia and around the world play with a ball just like this - even Pope Francis did as a boy in Argentina. Ready to make yours?
All about Ethiopia
Throughout Socktober 2022, students across Australia will be learning about, praying and advocating for and raising funds to support vulnerable children in Ethiopia who are facing food insecurity and malnutrition. Learn more about our focus country and the project we are supporting this year.
