Training the leaders is meant on improving the health standard of many street children who are in the streets to avoid disease caused by poor hygiene.

"Hands are in constant contact with both the environment and your face, providing easy transportation from the surface of an infected object or person to your nose or mouth."

STREET kids in Ngara and Dandora now have an alternative hope of good health after their leaders were trained as trainers of trainers (TOT) on water sanitation and hygiene model activities with the new WASH United methodology.  Training the leaders is meant on improving the health standard of many street children who are in the streets to avoid disease caused by poor hygiene. Life Street for the street kid is not easy as they try to search for food with all the means in places and with these they need to have proper information on hand washing. “A lot of the street children are orphans or just abandoned, they make their own living by begging or stealing parts off vehicles, some sell scrap metal, papers plastic bags etc. The worrying thing is that a lot of these children are in search of food, clothing and shelter. The street kids usually sleep outside on cardboard mats, buildings under construction and old vehicle, our aim is to mentor and give them proper information and some self respect. If we don’t get to them soon it will be too late. Hygiene practices, such as washing your hands, prove the most effective ways to prevent contracting disease and spreading of disease. Hands are in constant contact with both the environment and your face, providing easy transportation from the surface of an infected object or person to your nose or mouth. Washing your hands with clean running water and soap helps reduce the amount of bacteria on your skin, lessening your chance of contracting diseases. The trained leaders will conduct weekly WASH programs training in their areas of operations.
