Football For WASH

Football For WASH

In our Football 4 WASH program, we use the power of football to influence behavior in the field of water, sanitation & hygiene (WASH) among school going boys and girls. YSU has formed WASH clubs in schools around Kitintale and Naguru slums and teachers are appointed as Patrons of these clubs. These WASH clubs carryout bi-weekly football and hygiene activities to spread the WASH messages. Slums are characterized by shortages in clean water, poor hygiene, poor garbage disposal and lack of toilets/ pit latrines. YSU therefore is harnessing the communities’ love for football to spread the WASH messages and we believe we can bring positive change to the slums.
