strengthen hand washing to 800 children in Rwanda

Apr 29, 2012

Updates and New Directions

Over the last few months, we have been unable to continue this project due to lack of funds. Our ultimate goals are to provide an educational program for a total of 2400 children that will teach them proper hygienic techniques for hand washing and maintaining clean water and to install water systems in the three schools that will improve the children's access to clean water. We are also currently undergoing a change in the leadership of this project so establishing a secure, more permanent system for those in charge of this project has been our top priority over fundraising.

We are hopeful that over the summer, when the Grassroots Onsite Work Interns from GlobeMed at the George Washington University arrive, we will be able to work with them in order to assess what else can be done to bring back more awareness of our project to the George Washington University and the United States at large. During the time in which the Grassroots Onsite Work Interns are in Rwanda, we are also planning on learning more about social media networking so that we can better spread our message and goals through sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and Wordpress. We will also be learning about grant writing opportunities so that we can maximize the potential for fundraising and get this project off of the ground.
