UNICEF representatives organized interactive lessons for 1,000 elementary school students as part of a two-day campaign on World Handwashing Day, October 15-16. Eight schools from the capital and Akhal velayat participated in the campaign.
The main goal of the project was to make students aware of the importance of good hygiene, especially hand washing. Using games and videos, the LRC ambassadors showed the children how germs spread and how to wash their hands properly to get rid of them. The Turkmen students, in turn, were very active and interested in learning the rules of clean hands.
