Special program on Clealiness and Hygiene - WASH

Last year Door Step School, Pune used "Swachacha Va Sundar Shala"(स्वच्छ शाळा सुंदर शाळा ) booklet published by Kirloskar Foundation to spread message on cleanliness among construction site school children. 
To promote 'cleanliness and hygiene' further in these children, Door Step School implemented Kirloskar WASH initiative at 20 sites covering 343 children. Majority of the activities were focused on 62 children who are now WASH Club Members. 

The implementing staff from Door Step School received formal training organised by Kirloskar Foundation which included topics such as Healthy Habits, Concept of Clean Water, Role of Soap, Introduction to Bacteria and virus etc.  Special Orientation for the DSS Supervisors was done followed by 'Theme' wise capacity building. 

Children learned importance of hand washing, clean water, personal hygiene through practical methods.  Significant impact is seen in many children in their awareness of these issues and they are seen in implementing them at home.
