In current project together with VIVA CON AGUA we are collecting donations for the program in India. Using the universal language of sport, music and art, behavior in the area of ​​washing and hygiene should be changed.

Your contribution is intended to finance the training of coaches and the necessary materials for 2 schools in the MADHYA PRADESH district.

Mobile clinic, Zimbabwe

The Tonga people live in an area of Zimbabwe with poor infrastructur, education and medical care. The only hospital is far away and there is a lack of staff and medical supplies. In order to close this gap, a mobile clinic for those in need has been operated on site for several years.

Your donations
will be used to finance the mobile clinic, which is supported by Operation Mercy, with materials for tests and medication for the treatment of malaria for a year.


Our completed projects

Medical supplies, Jordan

With this project we supported the clinic in the refugee camp in Jordan. The refugees live below the poverty line and they cannot afford their health care.


Medical care is a major challenge in the camp. Many illnesses are not covered by UNHCR health care.


Operation Mercy runs a weekly clinic in a church building in the camp. This gives the refugees better access to health services and this significantly reduces the burden on the refugee families.

With the collected donations of 2,550 EUR the medical supplies for this clinic was financed for one year.

Football4WASH, Uganda

Our 13st project supports the organisation VIVA CON AGUA with their project Football4Wash in Uganda.

Football plays an important role in the slums of Uganda. In this program the girls and boys learn in a playfull way more about water, toilets and hygiene. Part is also to learn and internalize the usage of the newly build facilities.
With the donation of 5,000 € we supported the execution of the modul Football4Wash as well as the menstrual hygiene workshop for girls in 5 schools.

Additionally with your donation 5 schools received mobil handwashing stations.

School hygiene, Nepal

A current program of the SOS Children's Village Switzerland deals with hygiene in schools after the Covid 19 pandemic in the Bharatpur region in Nepal.

Poverty is still widespread and the pandemic has revealed that many public schools lack adequate toilets, drinking water and soap.


The multi-year project also includes the renovation of toilets and water pipes.

Responsibility e.V. participated in the renovation of various schools with donations of 2,500 CHF in June 2023.

Well construction, Ethiopia

The organization vzw Nosissa from Belgium builds wells together with the local organization Wogen in Ethiopia. The local technology institute has defined a total of 16 boreholes which urgently need to be revised.
In the village of Guramba is one of these boreholes, which has been converted into a well with a pump at optimal depth. In February 2023, this fountain was ceremonially put into operation.

Thanks to the donations and income from the badminton tournament, the construction could be financed with an amount of 4,700 €.

Latrine construction, Niger

With another project together with the SOS Children's Village Switzerland, the construction of latrines was supported in the Niamey region in Niger.

Harmful behavior and a lack of hygiene are major issues in this area. Parents and students learned how to keep latrines and water pipes clean by means of educational campaigns.


As part of this hygiene project, 4 latrine blocks were built, promoting better hygiene for families including children.

Responsibility e.V. financed this construction in September 2022 and made the implementation possible with a donation of 2,500 CHF.

Sanitary facilities, Armenia

In this project, the construction of sanitary facilities and water connections in Armenia was supported together with the organization GAiN.

Along with the cold, hygienic care is one of the biggest problems. It was common to build toilets and kitchens away from the house, and there were no showers or plumbing.
Many families still fill drinking water into canisters at local taps. And especially in winter, its difficult to go to an external outhouse or provide hygiene to small children.

Thanks to the donations, the construction of water connections and sanitary facilities could be supported in June 2022 with an amount of EUR 5,000.

Cardio monitor, Philippines

With our last project, the Spital Parades Medical Center & Hospital in Cavite - Philippines was supported directly. The hospital in the city of Imus is open to the public and has 17 beds. In addition to emergency care, the hospital also offers primary care for illnesses and is equipped with a clinical secondary laboratory with pathologists, a blood station and a pharmacy.
The clinic urgently needed functioning surgical equipment in the form of an anesthesia machine with a cartographer and heart monitor. Thanks to the donations, the heart monitor worth around € 4,500 was delivered to the hospital in Cavite in December 2021. The employees can now use this successfully and thus improve health care.

Covid-19 hand hygiene, Zimbabwe

There are no adequate washing facilities in Zimbabwe. This is because the water pipes are often defective and the sewage system is inadequate. The noticeably poor hand hygiene practices should be improved by changing behavior and installing hand washing stations. Mobile stations are set up in communities, markets and bus stations.
In September 2021, the amount for the project was transferred to the partner at the international organization GOAL. The goal of setting up mobile hand washing stations in the district of Kuwadzana in the province of Harare can now be implemented. With the donation of € 5,000, a total of 6 such stations including workshops will be financed.

Health project Adwa, Ethiopia

Our last project was to promote the health and hygiene of the mostly single parents and their children in the communities of Adwa. The city of Adwa is located in the northern border area between Ethiopia and Eritrea. A conflict over the border has been simmering there for years. The hygienic conditions are bad.

Responsibility e.V. wanted to finance the total project costs for the year 2021 of the SOS Children's Village with the help of your donation.

In November 2020, conflict broke out again in this region and the project had to be stopped after the offices were looted and the employees evacuated. The hygiene situation in the Tigray Region has deteriorated further due to the renewed acts of war and almost half of the health facilities are no longer in operation. Accordingly, the collected donations of CHF 4,000 will be made available to the SOS Children's Village for urgently needed health and hygiene measures in the region.

Children's home La Buena Semilla, Peru

With our fifth  project we were financing the renewal of the well system and the water tower. The aim was to improve the water quality and hygiene of children and their carers in the La Buena Semilla children's home in the Amazon of Peru.

The Isaiah Foundation is a Canadian organization that is commited in Peru for abandoned and abused children. The home is about 10 kilometers outside the village of Puerto Maldonado and offer a haven for 10-12 children aged 4-6 years.


The home exists since 2009 and in the past 10 years the well system has deteriorated and the water tower was in danger of collapsing. Accordingly, the water quality had decreased significantly.

The renovation will not only allow better filtering to be installed in the future but also ensure clean water when the house is expanded.

Responsibility e.V. was able to finance this important investment of 5.500 US-Dollars with the help of your donation.

Children's home Manuela, Bali

Our fourth project did target the water supply and sanitation of children and their caregivers in the children's homes Manuela I and II in Balangan - Bali, Indonesia.

The Foundation for Leprosy and Child Relief in Indonesia is committed to help lepers, orphans and otherwise impoverished children in Indonesia, and operates local hospitals and children's homes. This includes the children's home Manuela I and II in the village Balangen, which is located on a limestone hill. As a result, water seeps underground very quickly and  water was only found at a depth of 100m.


The biggest concern of the children's homes is the maintenance of electricity. As part of the buildings and to ensure a smooth power supply, the children's home is forced to install emergency generators. The state is unfortunately unable to deliver electricity without interruptions. Without this stream not a drop of water is coming from the taps in the children's home. So there is no food, no clean children and the toilets are not working.

To provide a power supply even during the regular power outages, which could take up to 2-3 days, the installation of own power generators is the only solution.

Responsibility e.V. contributed to the financing of a generator for the children's home in Balangan and was able to support the redemption of short-term loans in March 2020.

Kandyaa Child Protection Centre

Our third and current project aims to improve the living conditions of children and their care takers at the Kandyaa Child Protection Centre in Sodoké, Togo.

The children at Kandyaa are victims of brutal violence, exploitation, child trafficking, social exclusion and gross neglect. Many of them have been abused, ostracized and expelled as so-called witch children. Children in these emergency situations are able to find temporary shelter, protection, and psychosocial care at this state-recognized institution. Where possible, children within the centre’s care are prepared for family and social reintegration.


To supply the centre with basic food stuffs, Kandyaa has its own farm only 8 km from the institution. At the farm, chickens, rabbits, and sheep are kept, and fruits and vegetables, such as corn, beans, yams, and peanuts are cultivated. In recent months, the farm has developed into a protective environment for agricultural education of older children (14 years and older). With this growth in services, the current simple latrine and small washroom is no longer sufficient.

With the help of your donation, the RESPONSIBILITY Club will fund the installation of a new, gender-separated sanitary facility to improve hygiene standards at the child protection centre.

Matyazo Hospital

Following successful completion of the Club’s first project in December 2017, our second project centred on supporting healthcare workers at the Matyazo Hospital in Tanzania.

The Matyazo Hospital is a Tanzanian medical care facility located approximately 45 km northeast of Kigoma.  The hospital is an important facility for obstetrics in the Kigoma Region, where more than 1300 babies are delivered, and nearly 1200 surgeries are performed each year.

A functional operating light is an essential component of Matyazo Hospital’s surgical equipment. However, the cost of an operating light exceeded the financial capabilities of this hospital.

Through donations from employees and fundraising activities held throughout the year, the RESPONSIBILITY Club was able to successfully raise the 4,800 USD necessary to purchase the surgical lamp.  The funds for the surgical lamp were officially donated in July, 2018.

General Trias Medicare Hospital

The inaugural project of the RESPONSIBILITY Club was focussed on raising the necessary funds to provide a much-needed ambulance car for the General Trias Medicare Hospital. General Trias is located on the southwestern outskirts of Manila and provides a vital first-stop care for medical emergencies to a population of approximately 245,000 people.

In situations where patients must be transported to healthcare facilities with greater medical capabilities, there were few safe and reliable transportation options available.
Through donations from OPHARDT hygiene employees and fundraising activities held throughout the year, the RESPONSIBILITY Club was able to successfully raise the 20,000 USD necessary to purchase the fully equipped ambulance car.  In December 2017, members of the RESPONSIBILITY club met with representatives from the General Trias Medicare Hospital to officially donate the ambulance.

Thanks to your donations, patients are now able to be safely transported to and from the hospital.
