FIFA 11 for Health Programme


Two weeks ago we were fortunate to participate in a Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) funded training programme that is aimed at using soccer to promote good hygiene practices, raise awareness on HIV & AIDS, prevent malaria, promote access to basic education and promote

gender equity. Teacher Ramadhan Makokha our deputy head teacher represented the centre in the week long program and will be implementing the things that he learned in the workshop at the centre. At the end of the workshop FIFA donated 8 soccer balls, 20 insecticide treated bed nets, 25 bibs and a pump. The bed nets have been distributed to 17 households and three remain at the centre for training and demonstration. The other materials will be used to improve sports at the centre.

We are very grateful to FIFA for the opportunity and the materials.
