The FIFA "20 Centres for 2010" campaign, which was called into life as part of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ official corporate social responsibility program "Football for Hope," is nearing completion. Alongside FIFA, Yingli Green Energy, an Official Sponsor of the FIFA World Cup™ and the world's largest PV module manufacturer, utilized its expertise in renewable energy to provide solutions for this campaign to assist FIFA in improving the social environment for children in Africa with solar power. For the centre in Alexandra, Yingli Green Energy provided PV modules for the solar street lighting system.

Yingli Green Energy has equipped all centres with a total of 258 pieces of PV modules with a supply capacity of 23 kilowatt peak. Each centre was able to choose between a variety of photovoltaic systems such as a solar-powered lighting system for the playing field, a water pump including water reservoir or a photovoltaic power supply system. Since the launch of the campaign, 16 centres have been built across the African continent and four remaining centres pending by the end of the year or in 2014. FIFA has closely and constantly collaborated with the communities where the centres had been built, in order to ensure that the new infrastructure would meet the local needs. Each Football for Hope centre consists of a playing field for football and a building where educational projects take place and football is viewed as an instrument for promoting motivation and dialog within the community.
