How you can help
V. Muñoz; UN Special Reporter says, "School is a crucial place for hygiene promotion, since children will take these lessons home and influence other family members.” Reach the Children is placing 320 hand-washing stations and supply of soap bars at 160 schools located in Western Kenya, Africa. Flip-charts will be given to each school showing proper soap and water hand-washing to the children.
