Students Trained as Sanitation Ambassadors

Today, a beautiful WASH class was held in which students learned they can lead for Swachh Schools, Swachh Communities and a Swachh Bharat.

After lively discussions with the GIWA team, the participants were divided into six groups, which were assigned the tasks of going to classrooms, playgrounds, toilets, hand washing stations and drinking water sources and writing down their observations on the WASH-related problems found there, with their likely solutions.

The students, from Rishikesh’s Government Intermediate College in Laxman Jhula, took a very active part in the group work and presented their findings along with proposed action plans plan in front of all assembled. They also expressed a demand for another such class in the near future.

DSF is working with the Global Interfaith WASH Alliance (GIWA) to educate schools and communities alike on the importance of proper hygiene and sanitation.
