Making Good Hygiene Fun

Teaching kids in India to practice good hygiene can be a tricky subject, but our in-country partners have found ways to make education fun: silly skits, contests, and fun sing-alongs like the one seen in this video.

Good hygiene is the cornerstone to a long and healthy life, and teaching children at an early age ensures they'll always follow hygienic practices. What's more, kids will pass along their newfound knowledge to their whole family - parents, grandparents, older siblings - with a kindhearted effectiveness a traditional educator could never employ.

Help us teach even more kids about handwashing; get involved.
