Huambutuio Soap Project

We visited the preschool in Huambutio and taught the children about the importance of hand washing today. The children listened to a fun story about germs and parasites (! ) and then participated in a hand washing demonstration before receiving a bar of hand made soap each.

This is the first of many health education talks we will be doing in the community and in the future we are considering holding a community workshop on how to make hand made soap.

Wonderful. Did you do the eight ways of rubbing your hands to get them really clean? Such an important thing. (Jane D)
