Jamshedpur, July 22: Keeping in mind the monsoon season, members of Rotary Club of Jamshedpur West under their project TEACH , WINS ( wash in schools) visited Harisundarpur Government primary school on Thursday and contributed towards development of the school.
On the occasion club members taught children how to wash hand correctly. They also installed a tippy tap system in the school and provided child support to continue education.
To provide support to children in attending school during rainy season, 45 umbrellas were provided to all children, teachers and support staff. These umbrellas carry the logo of Rotary and the Club’s name, which will eventually help in positive image building.
The members not only talked about washing hands with soap, but also installed tippy tap system for effective hand wash using soap. This system is cost effective, user friendly and made with items easily available at local geographical area with old Cans. There is very little wastage of soap and children were very much excited and happy with this novel idea of hand washing.
It was inaugurated by Principal of the school and children for whom it matters the most.
It is an effort to encourage villagers to install this system at their own houses too which doesn’t took more than an hour to be ready for use. The club members were hopeful that this culture will start a new chapter in village health & hygiene map.
The club members also distributed 20 slates to children who needed slates for writing. Teacher Raibari sent the request to the club which was fulfilled within a week.
The club members thanked interactors of Baridih High School for providing handmade charts on hand wash techniques. Rotarian Alakananda Bakshi, Shweta Chand, Nibha, Bipin and Anupma truly demonstrated with poems and acting how hand wash can prevent spreading diseases.
