Since 2009, SEP has been organizing its National Soccer tournament and educational camp typically attended each year by as many as between 2000 – 2500 participants.  The event is held at local schools in the Oyugis region, the event brings together various boys and girls soccer teams from across the country to participate in a tournament.. Participants’ ages range from 13 through20.  Every year the SEP event organizing committee chooses a relevant educational theme/topic to be included as part of the soccer camp.  The theme must be relevant to a social issue affecting the participants various communities. The educational components of the camps are taught through formal workshops and included group discussions on various life skills.

In 2016, Society Empowerment Project (SEP) will be hosting its Eighth (8th) National Soccer Extravaganza camp on August 25th – 27th 2016.  This year’s education focus will be on WASH skills.   Thus the tournament will host both the usual games with awards to be won, along with detailed and focused wash training during each of the three camp days.

Participants will engage in discussions and game playing, designed to empower them to learn about the activities which contribute to health problems and to adopt the proper actions to improve WASH promotion in their respective communities.  WASH education activities for all camp participants will take place on all three of the camp days, generally from the hours of 8.30 – am and  4.30 –  6.15p.m

 Expected outputs in the WASH training sessions will be

  1. Recognizing the causes of ill health.
  2. Practicing healthy water handling habits.
  3. Practicing proper sanitation and hygiene.
