In the last few months, the project has continued to support all the project schools for maintaining the hygiene and sanitation facilities in the schools. Three more project schools were added to the list of schools supported for cleaning and maintaining the school toilets. THree local women/ ayyahs were identified from each village and were appointed earlier this month. They are now going to the school each day and are cleaning the toilets and ensuring that hygienic conditions are maintained.
OTher than this the project is also taking up a semi-annual clearning (through acid washing) of the hygiene facilities in the large schools. Special contractors are hired for this pupose and they spend two days to clean the toilet and make them look new once again. We have found that doing this twice a year helps in the upkeep and makes the toilets look good in the long run!
Kalanjiyam staff members are also conducting special awareness classes for the school children, on the issue of hygiene and sanitation. Children are encouraged to come up with slogans and speak about the benefits of good hygiene.
We thank all of you for continuing to support this effort! Only your support is helping us to implement this program.
