Due to the expenses involved healthcare such as dental and medical care is typically reserved for the middle class. Our students have therefore typically never been to a dentist or a doctor before and understand little of the risks in not brushing their teeth or washing their hands..
Students have limited access to resources that keep basic hygiene, with teeth brushing and handwashing being particular problems for them. We aim to provide our students with basic hygiene kits alongside regular workshops to teach the importance of basic hygiene practises. These workshops will be vital to the success of the hygiene kits as most of these children are unaware of how to begin brushing their teeth and washing their hands. It costs this project $50 to supply 10 kits and we have raised $300 so far.
