Hand Washing Stations
In the midst of the COVID pandemic, hand washing stations and soap making workshops were launched in 13 schools serving over 16,000 primary students in Arusha. Under the slogan “Clean hands save lives!” students were educated in the proper way to wash their hands in order to prevent the spread of infection. They then shared their effective hand-washing techniques throughout their households and communities.
Sinon Primary School in Arusha, Tanzania had only 29 pit latrines (squat toilets) for a student/staff population of 3,567! WaterBridge Outreach, working alongside The Foundation for Tomorrow, provided financing for the construction of a new toilet block containing 10 pit latrines at the school.
Publishing Books in Kiswahili
An initiative of Writers for WaterBridge Outreach Book is publishing books in the native language of communities with limited teaching and learning resources, and where any access to books is especially difficult. The first completed project was the production of 8,000 booklets in Kiswahili in close collaboration with Melissa Queyquep of The Foundation for Tomorrow in Tanzania.
