Practicing Healthy Habits

Health alerts are common with the onset of the monsoons in India. With preventable diseases like dysentery, cholera and typhoid still a very real problem in rural and urban areas, exercising good hygiene habits and caution when using water is imperative.

ROS 2Health and Hygiene practices are taught regularly in RDF schools. The infrastructure in all schools is upgraded regularly with financial help from RDF donors. Every school has fully functioning toilets for boys and girls. Staff undergoes consistent Health and Hygiene sessions with RDF Headoffice staff volunteers and medical practitioners. These are implemented and monitored daily by senior students and staff.

ROS 1Recently, Rollakal School conducted a session on ‘Importance of Washing Hands’ for pre-primary and primary children. There was a discussion with the little ones on the importance of washing hands with soap before and after eating and when using toilets. Simple information on spread of germs and diseases through not washing hands were given.

The kids have taken the instructions seriously and remember to wash their hands when needed.
