Poor sanitation and hygiene practices are linked to the transmission of diarrhea diseases such as cholera and dysentery, typhoid, and intestinal worm infections, polio and reduction of human well-being, and social economic development due to impacts such as anxiety, risk of sexual assault, and loss of opportunities for education and work(WHO in March 2022).
Afyaplus organization through a Water Project in Tanzanian schools is working to improve school sanitation and hygiene status through the provision of hygiene education and the construction of hand washing facilities in schools.
Improving access to sanitation and hygiene services in schools not only saves the lives of the children but also creates a better and safer learning environment for schoolchildren, increases the enrolment, retention, and academic success rate of pupils, and saves money and time to recover from illness caused by poor hygiene and sanitation services.
During this year 2023, the organization managed to construct four hand-washing facilities in four schools and provide education on good sanitation and hygiene practices to 2909 Students (1228boys, and 1681girls) from four schools namely Kalenga secondary, Kalenga primary, Mkwawa secondary, and Miyomboni secondary school.
While the world becomes increasingly competitive, children in rural areas risk getting left behind by not washing their hands. Constructing hand washing facilities and creating awareness sessions for school children will help to protect them from WASH-related diseases and increase their school performance.
Working toward the solution Afyaplus organization initiated the water in a Tanzanian school project, which aims to provide a quality learning environment as it provides access to clean and safe water and the construction of hands washing stations and is inclusive to school children with disabilities it's going to accommodate more than 10000 school children, teachers, and other school workers in Tanzania.
