Each year on 15th October, 200 million people worldwide celebrate Global Handwashing Day. 

We’d urge you to join Lifebuoy’s mission to educate five million children on the importance of hand hygiene by 2025! 

Teaching our children why handwashing matters is vital. 

Lifebuoy, Official Hygiene Partner of the EFL, set up a kids hand hygiene programme called ‘Soaper Heroes’ which has been put in place to improve kids hand washing behaviours.  

The aim of the programme is to help kids, and those around them stay healthy. If we can keep them away from having sick days from nasty germs, we can have them out playing sport and there is where you can help! Lots of clubs and kids are already taking part in the programme, utilising the engaging and educational football activities in their everyday training sessions.

Good hand hygiene doesn’t need to be difficult!

  • A welcome letter from EFL’s Soaper Heroes Ambassadors
