Welcome to Football for Water
Football for Water is a unique program in Ghana, Kenya and Mozambique in which the power of football is used to influence behavior in the field of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) among school going boys and girls. The program is initiated in 2012 and funded by key Dutch WASH in school players in the public sector, development organizations and the private sector.
The program is unique for many reasons but our main Unique Selling Point is the football/fun-factor. Football brings fun, team spirit and discipline into our life skills trainings which has a positive effect on motivation, memory retention and supports the creation of new skills and healthy habits.

THE STORY OF FOOTBALL FOR WATER
IN THE SPOTLIGHT
For years we all are enthusiastically involved in school WaSH all over the world. Good results have been achieved in hard- and software of the WaSH.
Water: yes, Toilets: yes, we can provide it all but how about the essential soap provision? Reality learns that soap at the hand wash facility is not feasible due to lack of funds and misuse. The H of Hygiene is still underexposed! A team of Dutch designers and entrepreneurs have been working on this challenge for the last two years with as result the XOPI.
The XOPI is a (child) friendly though vandalism proof soap dispenser. It works with the common known and available soap bars (average 0.80 euro/bar). With an ingenious system only the care taker can open and re-fill the XOPI. The XOPI is easy in use and low in maintenance.
