On Friday, November 17, 2023, the Early Childhood Center of NCI played host to the school’s advocacy arm of our WaSH-Gender research team for the establishment of a Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH) club. The program aimed to educate children on the best personal hygiene practices and the importance of WaSH, especially as it is obtained globally.

In preparation for our visit, a classroom session was organized by the staff members to enlighten the children on WaSH practices.

During the hands-on demonstration, hundreds of children who came out in batches were taken to a designated area/wash station for a demonstration of proper hand-washing techniques. Our team used age-appropriate language and visuals to teach. Children were then allowed to practice hand washing themselves.

The WaSH enlightenment program was a valuable learning experience for the nursery school children. Our presence led to the rehabilitation of defunct hand-washing stations in the school.

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