HYGIENE EDUCATION

SCHOOL-BASED

WATER-HEALTH & HYGIENE EDUCATION

Changing behavior saves lives through child-friendly programs

Kicking off the installation of our clean water solution, Planet Water implements a school-based Water-Health & Hygiene Education program in each school we support. Our four-module, four-week program educates children on the importance of clean water as it relates to the spreading of germs, proper method of hand washing, and protecting against germs through a hands-on, activity-based program which incorporates games, drama, song and dance. All materials are delivered by trained teachers in the local language.
