This project is currently running in Dar Es Saalm primary schools. Research has shown that proper hand washing habits can contribute to reduce diarrhea by up to 45% as well as pneumonia.
KiKi Project(Proper toothbrushing for children)
KiKi abbreviation for Kinywa Kisafi, a Swahili word means "clean mouth". KiKi Project is ran together with MiMi project, where we train children to brush their teeth properly. This project goes together with donation toothbrushes to make the children getting used to the habbit of brushing their teeth at least twice a day which is recommended with the dentists
Wajali Project(Supporting girls on their period for healthy education
Wajali a Swahili word means caring, Access to sanitary pads have been a problem for girls due to poverty, this problem is observed mostly in rural areas like Tanga, Kilwa, Morogoro e.t.c. where girls miss a week of school every month when they have their period because they don't have access to sanitary pads. Wajali project focuses on supplying safe and affordable sanitary pads and helping girls win back up to 12 weeks of school each year by helping them manage their period in a more hygienic and healthy way.
The way we operate in this project involves secondary school students, supporting them to know about their career what they would really like to do, as for now is quite a problem... Most kids have no idea of what they would like to achieve in their lives. So the project is divided into two parts one being Training(Workshops) and the other is Events that are in form of a forum.
