The children appreciate hand washing sessions

There were many activities carried out in the Project Strengthen Hand Washing to 800 Children in Rwanda, in these last months. To mention some, there were teaching session carried out at both Primary and Secondary Schools in Huye District to raise students’ awareness about hygienic measures especially hand washing habit.

Nextly, we selected four families in Nyakagezi Village, Huye Sector with an average of 5 children who did not have latrines and we built for them Ventilated Improved Pits (VIPs). During those building activities, we conducted teaching sessions in the community in order to increase hand hygiene awareness even to the community.

 

Lastly, we celebrated together the hand washing day where more than a thousand students and a hundred villagers together with local leaders and the Dean of Students at the University of Rwanda Participated in it . We chose most vulnerable people and provided them with tools to keep clean water.

Students from different schools competed in demonstrating how hygienic measures can be achieved through Handwashing.

One of the women, Marcelline, for whose family we built latrines gave testimony on how it helped her family getting rid of long lasting infectious diseases from the lack of hygiene. She said that many children in the village suffer from that and sometimes one can find children suffering from sores in their feet from lack of hygiene. She thanked RVCP on behalf of other families and wished that every family could have appropriate latrine to reduce those diseases.

Special thanks to everyone who contribute to make this happen, your donation has served the community and we hope to continue working together to improve the living standard of those families especially children.
