April-May 2019: Lavatory Groundbreaking

Children have the right to sanitation, and to health. This right needs to be fulfilled in schools, where children spend much of their day. To improve the effectiveness of hygiene, behavior change programs should be implemented through a child-friendly initiative that ensures healthy habits. These habits should be practiced and integrated into daily school routines to stress the importance of proper sanitation to health. Group activities drive this incremental approach, beginning with daily, supervised group hand-washing sessions. The promotion of good hygiene behavior at school can initiate behavior changes that last a lifetime.

Last February 2019, the group proposed the construction of a school lavatory in Venus Elementary School among the members of Parent Teacher Association (PTA). A month after, it was also proposed before the barangay council. Among the parties mentioned, it was agreed that the barangay council will provide for the construction materials, and the PTA will subsidize 50% of the labor fee, while the other 50% will be the team’s contribution Engr. Jainal, DPWH ARMM, drafted the Program of Works. Groundbreaking of the school lavatory dated last March 18, 2019. It is the group’s desire that through this structure, handwashing will be inculcated in the children’s behavior as a means to improve health.
