The Power of Hygiene and Education

We made an immediate connection with the kids and their teachers this morning as we walked through our first hygiene education program one class at a time (6 classes). We emphasized that good hygiene would mean not missing school, and staying in school (providing them with school supplies) would mean they would succeed on their own - empowerment is key. Of course the kids were thrilled when we provided each class with a soccer ball for recess as their reward for being good students.
