Public School Health Education

By Lee Weingrad | CEO

The assessment for the Public School Health Education Project was completed about a month ago --we decided that it was impossible to teach students to brush their teeth, wash their hands before eating, wear clean clothing, when they had no clean clothing, and they learned in a dirt-floored one-room classroom with tree stumps for chairs and windows that have no glass.

We also decided to create a football pitch and with the help of Nike, will provide them with soccer balls, shoes and uniforms.

It seems that we have to raise the whole sea to move this little boat. When we've done that, in July we can begin to train the Community Health Workers to teach health education. This whole project has definite parameters --unlike our other clinic projects-- and we should be able to see results this year.
