SOS Children’s Villages conducts ‘handwash’ awareness drive in Bawana to stop spread of COVID-19

SOS Children’s Villages of India, a self-implementing childcare NGO, conducted an awareness drive on handwashing in Bawana, Delhi.  The drive, which twenty children of the ‘Balpanchayat’ helped organise, is part of the NGO’s continued efforts to enhance awareness on health and hygiene.  

In an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, co-workers of SOS Children’s Villages of India provided training to the children of the ‘Balpanchayat’ on washing hands the right way, wearing face masks, disposal of used masks and following social distancing norms. The children then took ownership of the campaign and in turn provided training to the caregivers of the Family Strengthening Programme, children, and other members of the community. 

The children of the ‘Balpanchayat’ downloaded photos and short videos on correct handwashing techniques and circulated these among the community through the medium of Whatsapp. Children also worked on the creation of banners related to handwashing, which they used in a small rally organised within the cluster, all the while maintaining the rules of social distancing.
