Hygiene and Sanitation Teaching sessions

Among the hygiene, water and sanitation program activities; we conduct weekly teaching sessions at primary school for kids aged 7-12 years old. The aim of the sessions is to build a culture of hand washing and home hygiene for children at their early age. Through posters, games and teaching, the receive various knowledge on good hand washing practices, using soap, cleaning ustensils at home before eating ... 

During the first trimester, over 100 students received weekly teaching sessions and volunteers enabled them to practice the hygiene and sanitation at school. volunteers demonstrated every activity and they provided examples of the theories given to children. They were also encouraged to practice everything at home and become ambassadors of hygiene and sanitation promotion at their families and villages. 

We hope to reduce diseases which are caused by low hygiene conditions among children in Rwanda through providing accurate knowledge and skills to primary school kids who mostly suffer as a results of low hygiene conditions. the advocacy is also done at the local leaders to help school having enough water and various ressources needed to improve hygiene and sanitation condition for children at schools.
