Hygiene Heroes

The new Ambassadors with their faculty advisors

There’s a new team of hygiene heroes at Agua Escondida Primary School!

Tomás Pacay Mendoza is the manager of Pueblo a Pueblo's Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) in Schools project. On July 23, he visited Agua Escondida to meet with its brand-new group of Hygiene Ambassadors: students who will work alongside faculty to promote healthy habits at their school.

These twelve students were selected by their teachers because they are active, enthusiastic, and invested in making their school a better place. The new ambassadors met with Tomás during his visit to learn more about their roles and responsibilities as Hygiene Ambassadors.

Their first order of business? Spreading the word about the importance of hand-washing—and how to do it correctly. The ambassadors will be on duty during recess, when they will encourage their peers to wash their hands (with soap!) after using the restroom. They will also participate in school-wide hygiene education assemblies, the first of which is coming up soon—just next week!

For now, the lower school Ambassadors have to point their fellow students toward a temporary handwashing station made up of a water cooler positioned over a plastic basin. While the school’s upper level got a makeover by the WASH project earlier this year, the lower school must wait for a second phase of construction. With your support, Pueblo a Pueblo will initiate phase two and rebuild a bank of bathroom stalls in Agua Escondida’s lower school. The new facility will include boys’ stalls, girls’ stalls, and a fully functional handwashing station.

At the end of their meeting with Tomás, the Hygiene Ambassadors received vests to symbolize their role as leaders in their school. The Ambassadors are already doing good work—consider a donation today to back them up with the improved facilities they need to make their school a healthier place to learn, play, and grow!
