Diarrheal and respiratory infections kill over 3.5 million children under the age of five every year. Hand washing with soap is the most effective and an inexpensive way to prevent these deaths. It can save the lives of 1.2 million children every year.
Watershed Management Group and our partner Grampari lead hand-washing sessions in rural primary schools to combat childhood diseases and improve general health.
The Watershed Management Group/Grampari team tours new tippy taps built in a rural village following a hand-washing program session led at the primary school a couple of months earlier.
