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.
