Sanitation

The WHO (World Health Organization) says that when we rinse our hands with water for 15 seconds, we can remove 70% of the bacteria. Water and Sanitation Hygiene or WASH is an essential part of supporting abundant and healthy communities.  To create a water source for sanitation purposes, we build rainwater harvesting system on the latrine pit to supply water to a handwashing station. With multiple tap stations, students now are able to wash their hands after latrine pit use. We created a comic book handbook / curriculum that educates kids on sanitation and hygiene practices keeping them healthy and in school. Students are taught this curriculum to better understand how bacteria spreads, how to keep themselves clean and how to identify clean water sources.
