Success Story

Sports Tournaments

The region of North Kamagambo is home to one of the highest HIV-prevalent areas in Kenya. Where one in five people are currently infected with HIV/AIDS, access to safe water and sanitation is crucial to keeping people’s weak immune system’s healthy. For the last three years, more than 950 community members have been trained in water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) practices while area schools have been building rain tanks and latrines. Additionally, the community has been hosting an annual sports tournament to promote healthy practices. Players can only compete after taking the four-day WASH training and showing proof during follow-up of a latrine and hand-washing station at their homes. Each year, more than 15 teams compete with over 1,000 spectators for the event.
