Schools are an entry point for sanitation and hygiene promotion. If children learn hygiene practices from an early age, they can help others in their families and communities to change their behaviour, leading to a healthier life for everyone.
These two girls are from Saraswati Higher Secondary School in Nepal’s Doti District. They have been trained as peer educators as part of a project run by TEAR partner United Mission to Nepal designed to encourage positive behaviours and actions in the community that lead to better health.
Here, the girls are learning the steps for correct teeth brushing, which they will share with other students. They have also learned about hand washing, hair brushing and nail cutting, as well as some information on adolescent sexual and reproductive health. Around 20 students at this school were trained, and have been sharing what they learned with friends, families and other students. Every morning during assembly, members of the child club are rostered to check the hands, nails and uniforms of every student.
