Health and Hygiene Project

A Health & Hygiene Program teaches cleanliness and good hygiene as the essence of a healthy life.

  • IMG_0133Children attending the Learning Centre receive one health & hygiene lesson every week focused on cleanliness, nutrition, dental care, and treatment of cuts and burns.
  • Toothbrushes and toothpaste are provided to children in the community three times a year, with instruction in their use.
  • 150 students receive a dental check and any necessary treatment once a year.
  • High standards of personal hygiene, cleanliness, and availability of washing and drinking water are applied at the Learning Centre.
  • Hygiene measures are supported at two neighbouring government schools.

US$80 will cover the cost of Health & Hygiene lessons for one child for a year.
