Using the school annual day as a platform to inculcate best hygiene practices and to take that extra step to spread awareness among children and parents, Best Practice Washroom Pvt Ltd hosted “Hygiene Matters” with the Little More Activity Club in Mumbai. Choreographed and scripted by an able team, the school teachers brought the best out of three to six-year-olds.
Speaking to Clean India Journal on hosting such an event, Managing Director of BPW Vinay Ruparel, the brain behind the concept, said, “When my daughter once complained of not having even a small soap to wash in her school washroom, I pledged to do something about it. By teaching children ‘hygiene matters’ through skits, is the best way to get them practice and also realise the importance of hygiene. In turn, parents could press upon the need for basic hygiene provision like soaps, feminine hygiene bins for senior students, etc., at the school. Children have taken up hygiene seriously and have also started teaching their parents the right way of washing hands. This small initiative is just the beginning; there is a long way to go.”
“Over the years, Clean India Journal has been associating with companies like BPW to take hygiene and sanitation to schools. We believe that writing about cleanliness and hygiene should be combined with practical sessions like this which help children to grasp the importance of personal hygiene very easily,” said Editor-in-Chief of Clean India Journal.
