The FIFA 11 for Health Programme is a series of football based sessionsaimed at encouraging physical activity and educating children about healthy behaviours related to some of the world’s health problems
The programme is comprised of eleven, 90-minute sessions: each session comprises two 45-minute halves. The first half is called ‘Play Football’ and focuses on teaching young people skills related to a spefic aspect of footbal. The second half is called ‘Play Fair’ and focuses on teaching young people a particular health issue.
At the centre we have tweaked the the programme a bit to suit our circumstances. Because the children in the centre are below the age of 10 we have removed sessions on sexual and reproductive health and put more emphasis on Sanitation and Hygiene issue
