In Africa, diarrhea caused by a lack of toilets and poor hygiene kills more children under five  han HIV/AIDS, malaria and measles combined. Diarrheal diseases resulting from a lack of toilets and poor hygiene kill children every day and cost the Indian economy billions per year.


Using innovative football-based games and educational materials, WASH United creates awareness and educates children and adolescents in a fun and participatory way about the importance of safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene.


In order to achieve its mission, WASH United harnesses the passion for sport and the role model status of super stars. It also uses fun, interactive games and storytelling to promote learning and to facilitate long-term behaviour change and focuses on positive, inspirational communications.


A crucial feature of WASH United is that the initiative is open to everyone: in principle, every organisation aiming to promote safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene for all is invited to join the WASH United Club.  Let's show diarrhea the red card!
