WASH in Schools Program
To achieve our goal of improving global health, we take the lead on identifying vulnerable/at-risk communities and then work with community leaders to design outcome-based soap access and hygiene education programs that lead to long-term behavior change and locally-sustainable results. We operate these ongoing education programs in schools, maternal health centers, and community clinics.
We don’t just work in international communities – we also serve vulnerable populations in the communities where we work as well. We operate local hygiene education programs in schools, provide hygiene supplies to local homeless shelters and food pantries, and respond to local emergency situations as well. In addition, we pioneered a Mobile Hygiene Unit concept, which provides a mobile shower truck serving vulnerable populations and disaster victims with access to showers, hygiene supplies, and case management referrals.
