Lusaka youth and children kick start their most important league, the FIFA Football For Hope Water and Sanitation league also know as WASHE. With number of waterborne diseases increasing in the township, the peer leaders are not taking any chances. Lusaka has recently recorded cases of cholera and the league has started at the right time to educate the communities on how to avoid getting the deadly disease – cholera.
Children’s excitement will certainly create the much needed interest and publicity for the project to make an impact in the short term. This year’s cohort have already been engaged in the use of toilets and washing their hands after. Increased number of tape water buckets have also helped to see more children try out a safe way of cleaning their hands before eating food.
Chiparamba Breakthrough is excited to turn the 9th chapter of our relationship with FIFA in providing social change in our communities and most importantly addressing health needs through information sharing.
