sensitisation on handwashing in Gongatarey school

Before the advent of the CLTS in Plan Niger’s intervention area, students were using the area right behind the classrooms or the bush rather than in the latrines to defecate.

This includes promoting the use and maintenance of the school latrines, as well as student-led sessions on health and hygiene.
