hygine kit distribution
Among many other areas where CSA is supporting underprivileged children, the major one is WASH project. Here is some more information how the project is going on.
Wash (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene)
Basic sanitation and hygiene facilities at CCIs are inadequate in most cases. This past year, we undertook a major project of constructing toilets and bathrooms & renovation, provision of safe drinking water, sanitation kits (disinfectant floor cleaners – Harpic, Lizol etc.), undertake other infrastructure work such as septic tanks, drainage, painting and electrical work, provision of water purifiers etc. Hygiene Kits are distributed to children twice a year –
comprising of tooth paste, tooth brush, bathing soap, washing soap, sanitary napkins for older girls Hygiene Awareness sessions are conducted periodically
–Importance of hand washing etc.
–First Aid (for older children and CCI staff )
In addition, we introduced awareness workshops on ‘Safe and Unsafe Touch’ for all children in the age group of 6-14 years of age. Aim of sessions was to:
Inform children about the various forms of safe and unsafe touch Give children necessary information to prevent abuse, What should children do in case they are faced with such situations of potential abuse. The workshop consisted of a presentation and screening of video ‘Komal’ (Childline India), a brilliantly conceived short film on child sexual abuse.
