Ajay Mohan Giri

The Situation Before: Ajay Mohan Giri, is 7 years old, and lives at Saykhindi village with his father, mother, brother and sister. He is from a poor family, and parents work as labourers, leaving him to look after his siblings. Standards of hygiene are already low, and with the parents away for the whole day, the children are not properly cared for.

The Project Intervention: NISD has been started health program in the schools. NISD staff visited Ajay’s school and gave information on hygiene and health. At that time Ajay had little knowledge of these things, as such practices are not commonplace in the community. This being the case his clothes were not clean, he didn't wash regularly, he didn't wash his hands and so forth.

The NISD staff however, seeing how receptive and well behaved Ajay’s was, selected him to be the “health volunteer” from his class.

Current Situation: Now Ajay works as a school health volunteer. Not only is he now practicing good hygiene but he encourages his classmates to do the same. He has been explaining the importance of hygiene to both his friends and family.

He is a very active in the school, taking responsibility for the cleanliness of the school environment. Through this, his confidence has increased, and he is doing well in his studies. Not only is he now known as an ideal student at the school, his younger brother and sister are now in a much more healthy and hygienic environment, and are aware of such practices from a much younger age.

Thank you for enabling NISD to bring such positive and important changes to Ajay and his siblings' lives.
