4 Local Governments Done, 1600 Children Reached!

By Roberts Ukaigweh | Project Coordinator

For the 4th phase of this project, the Strategy and innovation for development initiative (SI4DEV) partners in Kaduna State utilized Visual aids, Poems and Rhymes to teach and create hand washing awareness in 5 schools in Igabi Local Government. It is aimed at supporting children's school attendance and promoting hygiene and health education in elementary schools in Kaduna.

TEACHING HAND WASHING PRACTICE
Partners led this sessions; they started off the sessions across schools by outlining the hand washing procedure and went further to demonstrate the procedure with the aim of teaching the kids proper hand washing methods with the use of a liquid hand wash and running water. Afterwards, two kids from each school where selected to repeat same process to ensure the session was learnt.

PRESENTATION OF TEACHING AIDS AND HAND WASHING MATERIALS
The presentation of teaching aids and hand washing items on behalf of SI4DEV to various Head Teachers of the schools in the Local Government. The items include 20 SI4DEV BRANDED CARTON OF HANDWASH, 5 BOWLS, and 5 DRUMS FITTED WITH TAPS.

A Project Sustainability Team (PST) was created in the schools. It’s made up of 2 teachers in each of the schools. They were saddled with the responsibility of carrying out a Hand washing workshop in the school at least once a month for 6 months and to be supervised by a Sustainability Supervisor to ensure accountability.
