City Football Schools have announced a unique partnership with Xylem, which aims to educate UAE-based children on the importance of hygiene, hydration and water wastage. An educational programme focusing on the importance of water was initially launched in four schools in Abu Dhabi. The programme has now been rolled out in a further six schools, with an additional 15 having expressed an interest in taking part from January 2021.
Simon Hewitt, Head of Football Operations MENA, explained: “We have been working hard this year to connect with many schools and children in the country to educate them on the importance of a healthy lifestyle – and this partnership with Xylem is a fantastic part of those efforts.”
Barbara Lubaczewska, Principal at Al Rabeeh Academy, one of the schools to have taken part in the programme, said: “The feedback from the students has been amazing and has helped to further their understanding of the important role that water plays in their health and hygiene.”
