Mosquito Nets for Remote Area Childrens.

by Redemption Research for Health and Educational Development Society

          Severe Cyclone by name Hudhud that struck Coastal Andhra Pradesh, South India on 12th October 2014 Over 100,000 houses in Visakhapatnam city ( Vizag), Vijayanagaram,Srikakulam have been severely damaged. Thousands of acres of paddy fields, banana farms and coconut farms are under water and fisher folk communities have lost their nets and boats to the cyclone. Over 250,000 people in 320 villages are affected and More than 2500 Schools are fully damaged and till today sanitation issue is not cleared.

     Children are agents of change. By focusing on school children, giving   them   tools   and   knowledge   to   change behavior   today,   future generations  will  be  better  prepared  to  care  for  their  families  and communities.
      The  present  project  is  specially  designed  to  support  20000  school children  including  Boys  and  Girls,  especially  More  girl  Childrens  studying  in  Government  Schools  of Hudhud Cyclone Effected areas of Vijayanagara, Visakhapatnam,and Srikakulam Districts of  Andhra  Pradesh, India through the establishment of Two sanitary blocks.( ( One Toilet + 4 Urinals For Girls and One Toilet + 4 urinals for Boys) 
  This  project  will  reduce  the  incidence  of sanitation   related   diseases   by   providing   effective   and   sufficient sanitation  for  all  the  school  children.  The  project  will  also  improve personal hygiene behaviour of students and teachers and improve the environmental sanitation of the school.


          One  of  the  major  problems  faced  by  the  school  age  children  is   infection  by  parasites  and  flukes.  This  type  of  sanitation  related infections obviously contribute not only to absenteeism in the schools, but  also  to  the  more  hidden  aspect:  Poor  health  of  children  affects their ability to learn and therefore influences their perspective in life. Good health at school is  essential for now  and an investment for the
             School  sanitation  facilities  are  usually  poor  (if  they  exist  at  all),  and are  not  designed  sustainably.  Schools  with  latrines  have  problems because  the  latrines  are  poorly  managed  and  are  not  particularly valued and are abandoned once pits are full. Cleaning toilets is usually enforced  as  a  form  of  punishment,  which  further  erodes  a  child’s
sense of the importance of good sanitation.  

Overall the PROBLEMS can be summarized as follows: 

 1) non-existent  or  insufficient  water  supply,  sanitation  and  hand-washing facilities;  

  2)  toilets or latrines that are not adapted to the needs of children, in particular girls;  

  3) broken,  dirty  and  unsafe  water  supply,  sanitation  and  hand-washing facilities;  

  4) children with poor hygiene and hand-washing practices. .


Working  with  Children on  basic  hygiene  and  sanitation  is  very  important:  

1)  Most  children  are  eager  to  learn.  Schools  can  stimulate  and support positive behavioral change in  

2) Children  have  important  roles  in  household  chores  related  to hygiene.  

3)  Children  may  question  existing  practices  in  the  household  and  become agents of change within 

     their families and communities.

4)  Children  are  future  parents.  What  they  learn  at  school  is likely  to
be passed on to their children.


Objective of the project is to create awareness among the community through school children .  

1) Preventing open defecation and using toilets.

2) Washing hands after defecation, before cooking and eating meals.

3)Keeping the school clean.


It  is  aimed  to  reach  more  than  20000  School  Childrens  from  55  Government Schools in Hudhud Cyclone effected Districts of Andhra Pradesh.


The Specified High Schools will have three sanitary blocks ( One Toilet + 4 Urinals
For Girls and One Toilet+ 4 urinals for Boys) in utilisation with proper care and maintenance.

1) All  the  15000  childrens  and  other  children  likely  to  be  admitted  to the High Schools will be utilising

     these facilities.

2) School children are practising good hygiene and sanitary practices and  became  agents  to  spread  the 

    change in their respective families and communities.

3)  Environmental sanitary condition in the Government High Schools are improved.
