2019 a year of progress for our Sanitation project!
By Janice Vard Smith - Project leader
Nandri recognises that educating our families in the importance of proper sanitation and hygiene is vital. Part of our project involves educating both the children and the mothers in how proper sanitation and basic hygiene prevent the spread of diseases such as diarrhea, cholera and polio. For many of our families the lack of a toilet means having to defecate in fields, putting themselves and others at risk of diseases and infections.
Education is the key. We are educating our mothers in the importance of basic hygiene and cleanliness. For example washing your hands frequently to prevent the spread of germs and diseases. We distribute educational information and by educating the women, they will in turn educate their families. Nandri also organises local doctors and nurses to speak to our mothers groups on the importance of hygiene and sanitation.
Happily this year as well as educating the community, Nandri has helped many families finance and install toilet facilities in their homes, bringing dignity and greater health to their lives.
With the help of our wonderful donors we look forward to building on and expanding our project in 2020. On behalf of our families and all the Nandri community we say a big "Nandri" to our donors. In other words - "Thank you"
