The workshop educated the children about the direct links between personal hygiene and good health. It is an approach for promoting personal hygiene among children. And also improving hygiene behaviours, reduce diarrhoeal disease and encourage effective community management of water and sanitation services. Creating a culture that welcomes discussion and makes adequate education for girls is of equal importance.

After the session, a small quiz was held for the children where small gift packs were awarded to the ones who gave the correct answers.”
