Challenge

According to UNICEF report in the Philippines, 48% of the precarious population in urban areas had either no access or limited access to decent hand washing facility and soap. Financially disadvantaged households in these areas are compelled to endure difficult health and sanitary conditions leading to poor hygiene practices. Vulnerable population particularly children are at risk of getting sick of water- related diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, typhoid fever and dysentery.

Solution

Access to hygiene awareness sessions and provision of hygiene kits will grant the children and the entire household with life saving information and behavioral change. The session will equip them with right information to prevent water contamination and occurrence of water related diseases such as diarrhea and cholera as leading causes of death among children.

Long-Term Impact

The project will benefit more than 500 children which will serve as "change agents" in their families and communities. The project aims to foster a culture of hand washing as a way of life, where inhabitants are clean, healthy and productive members of the community.
