Government Primary School, Ikot Ntuen Oku was among the schools in Uyo where the school WaSH club is established. The school WaSH club is an arm of the WaSH-gender project with the aim of inculcating the habit of proper hygiene in school children. The ceremony was flagged off in the presence of a large gathering of all the school teachers and pupils on Wednesday 5th July, 2023. The children all expressed solidarity with the organizers of the program despite the cold weather.

Hand washing facility was donated to the school while student volunteers gladly received gifts. After a tour of all the designated schools in the state, each school will present volunteers from their club members for a state WaSH competition which is scheduled to hold next term.

The IHE-Delft Water and Development Partnership programmes, financed by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, provided support to our WaSH-Gender project.
