Three stories from school hygiene promotion

As we started the hygiene promotion for the selected schools, which accepted the Syrian refugee students, and had problems such as the capacity of latrines and hygiene awareness; we began the teachers’ training sessions, followed by students’ sessions and hygiene kits distribution.

Upon our visit to conduct the students’ session in Alhamraa Secondary School for girls in Almafraq province, the teacher named Nisreen who held the students’ session prepared four groups of 16-year-old girls, each group had their own name “butterflies, flowers, seagulls and Youth of the Future”.


The teacher  start to handed them papers with different colors after she finished conducting the session, each group had a task to be accomplished, they wrote on pieces of papers different diseases types (definition, symptoms, methods of transmission and prophylaxis) inspired from our secondary hygiene promotion booklet. The result was an interesting collage that can be used in the school passages and it can be good brief information for all people together with our distributed posters.

One girl of them said “My ambition now is to be a model in increasing awareness in water conservation and health care especially hygiene care in my home and in my school”.


“To attract the young students attention and to get the maximum benefit of hygiene awareness” teacher Abdulla proclaim in the followed school visit Albowyada primary school for boys, the teacher prepared an interesting play held by two students. This play was based on our hygiene primary booklet, which is the story about Sarah and Ahmed.

“There is no soap in my school but from now on I have my own soap and I’m going to use it after the toilet and before eating”. A 10-year-old child who received hygiene kits from JEN proclaims so and he was so happy that he offered a candy to express how thankful he was.

It is nice to spread the spirit of hygiene, cooperation, joy and happiness in these schools.

We are so grateful for the support of Japan Platform and Contributors and for all JEN supporters.
