Valerie asks, “How do you feel today?”
“Good, happy, joyful.” respond the children.
“What do you get to do when you feel healthy?” Valerie asks.
“Go to school and play with friends!” children eagerly reply.

Washing our hands at Art of Conservation 2013Our students receive bars of soap and washcloths and practice washing their hands with buckets of water and plastic basins seen here in the photo. There is no running water at the schools.

Valerie teaches the children that to avoid getting sick from common illnesses they need to practice good hygiene. With that, she proceeds to demonstrate effective hand washing and distributes soap and washcloths to all of the students. The classroom fills with even more happiness and joy!

Washing our hands at Art of Conservation 2013Children learn our hand washing rules during this weeks staying healthy lessons.

Every student gets a chance to practice washing their hands with the buckets of water and plastic basins we brought in. Outside of the classroom are handwashing stations AoC has provided although they are in disrepair. We will look for a more sturdy design to replace them. If you have a nice design idea, we would love learning about it. Thank you!
