Since the new school year has recently started in Ghana. Mozambique and Kenya, we launched the Football for Water approach at several new schools. An example of this is the cluster of 18 schools in Ashaiman, near Accra.
To celebrate a new launch, we always organise a kick off. Sometimes small at the general assembly, sometimes at a larger scale such as last weekend in Ashaiman. Former Dutch international and ambassador Aron Winter organised a clinic for the children of the schools. Also Ed Nijpels, chairman Water for Life and Caecilia Wijgers, deputy ambassador of The Netherlands to Ghana, were present at this special day for Ghana.
We wish the schools good luck with the implementation of the program. And to all the children in Ghana: catch the ball, not the germ!
