Hygiene practice is integral in the development of children. Enliven Mama Africa aims to improve hygiene education and encourage behaviour change to ensure maximum health benefits.
HANDWASH project activities include building hand wash stations in the schools providing containers, soaps and other materials to improve upon hygiene in the schools. An efficient and effective implementation of the hand washing project in school programme will lead to students who (a) are healthier (b) Positively influence hygiene practices in their homes (c) Change their current hygiene behaviour and practice better hygiene in the future. Volunteers are involved in the building of hand washing stations and educating the students and teachers on hygiene practices.
