Awareness sessions on Hygiene and Health

Due to the importance of keeping healthy and hygienic habits, Laia Foundation has been conducting awareness sessions since 2005. Two volunteers from Barcelona have prepared educational material on this subject in order to raise awareness among students.

The awareness sessions’ objective was to tackle the following issues: promoting hand washing with soap (HWWS) as the most effective and inexpensive way to prevent diarrheal diseases and pneumonia and explaining the health issues related to open air defecation.

During the second part of the session children were split into several groups and elaborated charts and cards showing good and bad habits related to the issues tackled before.
