Supported by Architecture for Humanity, Football for Hope is an outreach initiative of FIFA™ given impetus by it's “20 Centres for 2010” programme that begun in South Africa as the official campaign the FIFA World Cup™ 2010. The centres are operated by Grassroot Football, where a large focus is not only on the development of soccer, but on the prevention of AIDS.
At the the most recently completed pro-bono project, KZN insulation installer, Ross Dunbar, donated his services and product to the construction of the latest Kwa-Kwa Football for Hope Centre, close to Harrismith. An excess of 150 m2 of Eco-Insulation was professionally pumped into the roof above the ceiling.
According to Architecture for Humanity local architect, George Kinuthia, the Eco-Insulation team “ was very professional and engaging in the whole process from arrival, assessing the scope, advising how they plan to execute, execution and satisfactory completion of the same.”
This results in a much more comfortable interior for the building, cooler in summer and warmer in winter, indeed good news for an extreme climate.
