Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)
Research undertaken by Good Neighbours in Cambodia in 2018 found that 69.5% of schools didn’t have functioning toilets, 60% of schools didn’t have group hand washing facilities and 74% of school children didn’t know the six steps to washing their hands effectively.
In response, we’ve set about providing access to clean water, pumps and water storage facilities, installing communal hand washing stations and building toilets in schools.
In addition, the WASH program teaches students about good hygiene practices and their role in keeping themselves and the whole community safe. From using toilets, to hand-washing, to menstrual hygiene for girls, the WASH program raises awareness and educates the community about the essential role water, sanitation and hygiene plays in daily life.
