About 200 kids participated in the grassroots festival. The initiative looked to use the power of football to educate children on the importance of clean drinking water and safe hand-washing practices. Educational sessions were delivered with a focus on ‘Germs! What are they and how do they spread?’ along with basic football drills and small sided games in which the children took part enthusiastically, showcasing their skills and passion for the game. The event was attended by Dinesh Nair, Head of Youth Development and Grassroots, Mumbai City FC on Sunday afternoon.

After the sessions the kids were presented with a certificate, medal and a Mumbai City FC Kit to make sure the knowledge about football, clean drinking water and sanitation sticks with them throughout their lives.

Mumbai City FC and Xylem’s unique partnership pledges itself towards the upliftment of local communities through football and aims to solve the water challenges faced by numerous deprived communities across the city.
