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.
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!
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!
