"The hand washing program is very simple to remember and very fun to do for the children. School children that take part can inform their family members and their communities how to wash their hands and be healthy at the same time.” - Dino, staff member of CWS-I, our partner in Indonesia.
In countries where disasters or wars are common, young children are especially vulnerable to diseases caused by poor sanitation. Schools play a critical role in teaching young people how to avoid these dangers and keep themselves safe.
Your gift of $35 will provide sanitation classes for a child at school where they will learn the importance of handwashing with soap. Your gift will also help teach them the life-saving skills they’ll need when disasters strike.
By making schools and communities safer, children can feel healthy and secure, giving them the opportunity to reach their full potential.
