Barbara, the mentor teacher for water, sanitation and hygiene at a partner school in Solomon Islands shares the success of the installation of a group hand-washing facility in the school. She also talks about successes of the student WASH Club members, and the changes in hygiene practice by students in the school. See her story in the short video below:
“The WASH Club members are writing poems, singing songs, doing arts in classes. The children are learning so much. I can see children are developing the habit for hand-washing. In the past you hardly heard children talk about washing hands….I hear them telling each other to wash their hands before eating.”
The construction of the group hand-washing facility, and the training for the mentor teachers and student WASH clubs was conducted by Live & Learn in Solomon Islands through the support of the Australian government funded Civil Society WASH Fund.
