Global Handwashing Day

Live & Learn worked with children in ten schools and various communities in the Nadroga/Navosa District to celebrate  Global Handwashing Day in October.  The children, as agents for change, promoted washing hands with soap and water, to help avoid diseases like diarrhoea. They will be the ones to show their families what they have learned and pass on important health messages. With the support of the local children’s television program ‘Get Set’, the Global Handwashing Day celebrations in the schools was aired for a week on Fijian television, reaching a larger and geographically diverse audience. A video capturing children promoting handwashing with soap and water was also produced and shared with stakeholders, partners and donors.
