“OUR HANDS OUR FUTURE”: HAND WASH DAY 2019
“Take care of your body…it’s the only place you have to live”.
Hygiene teaches us how to be the watchdogs of their own health. With an
objective to create awareness among students on the pivotal role played by hand
hygiene, ‘Hand Wash Day’ was observed as part of the Swachchata Pakhwada. It
created an opportunity to design, test and replicate creative ways to encourage
people to wash their hands.
Lack of proper hand hygiene will leave us prone to various contagious diseases.
The procedure for hand wash was explained and demonstrated to the students.
As part of enhancing personal hygiene, the students were instructed to follow a
simulation module which involved various steps and tips for ideal brushing of
teeth. The ideal quantity of the tooth paste to be consumed and the various steps
involved in brushing and the proper way of rinsing the mouth were discussed.
Thus an overall idea of the importance of hygiene, especially hand hygiene was
given to the students.
