Why we do it?
Schools, after the family, are the most important places of learning and therefore should be simulating learning environments. If all children have access to the basic facilities such as toilets, safe drinking water, clean surroundings and basic information on hygiene, they learn better and can forward sanitation and hygiene concepts and practices to their families. Similarly, teachers and students can function as role models and outreach to the wider community.
How can it be done?
1. Contact the school and inform them about the program.
2. Check and evaluate the current hygiene and sanitation situation at the school premises.
3. Plan information session and hygiene demonstration for the teachers and the students at the school.
4. Arrange the visit to the school: train teachers, practice basic hygiene and cleaning with the children and assure cleaning becomes part of their daily routine.
5. Follow the progress of the hygiene situation at the school.
