As parents we work hard to be able to provide our children with a safe and clean environment.
Safe and Clean! A community free of violence. A community with abundance of food. A community with access to electricity. A community with access to clean water. A community with proper sanitation. A community knowledgeable of proper hygiene. Unfortunately this are also some of the things that we take for granted.
What is sanitation? Sanitation is the hygienic means of promoting health through prevention of human contact with the hazards of wastes.
What is proper hygiene? Hygiene refers to the practice of cleanliness and also refers to the preservation of health.
Did you know that an estimated 2.5 billion people around the world who do not have access to basic sanitation. Sadly most of them are children.
Domestos and the Unilever Foundation have joined forces with UNICEF to help improve access to basic sanitation for hundereds of thousands of people by supporting UNICEF’s Community Approaches to Total Sanitation (CATS) programme.
The CATS programme is a behaviour change programme that promotes good hygiene practices, helps create demand for access to toilets and raises awareness of the sanitation crisis in order to reduce disease transmission.
