The Latrine World Cup in Burkina Faso: Everyone’s a winner!

March 20, 2013

To mark World Water Day, the Coupe régionale des Cascades de Football, organized by the Espace Culturel Gambidi and the Musée de l’eau, was held on March 18 at two high schools in Banfora with 950 participants. This event used soccer—a sport that young people are passionate about—as an educational tool to promote good hygiene in a fun way. In this game, students and teachers tried to kick a ball through a hole in each corner of a big panel, each successful attempt representing an accurate "shot" when using the latrine. Every kick was punctuated by a message developed by the students and their "coach" at the Musée de l’eau on the best hygiene practices.

Lack of access to water and sanitation takes a heavy toll on underprivileged populations. Millions have no choice but to do their business out in the open, in view of everyone. Women suffer especially from this situation. To protect their dignity as much as possible, they must often wait many hours to relieve themselves, putting their health and safety at risk.
