In remote Myanmar, school children can be found learning about health practices, such as washing hands and using clean bathrooms for the very first time.
Their teacher is Phyu Zin, a community facilitator with Habitat. Your contribution has provided training to facilitators such as Phyu Zin, who in turn teaches communities the importance of hygiene, raises awareness and helps break unhealthy habits.
“My favorite part is when I see children start to wash their hands and when communities begin to take responsibility for their own health,” said Phyu Zin.
She says the key to successful behavioural change lies in finding advocates within the community to spread the message.
Your support has helped train 148 active water committee members across 14 communities. Thank you for making a difference!
