PROJECT: Healthcare

INSTALLING 20 HANDWASHING FACILITIES IN EDUCATIONAL CENTRES

Background

The newly installed hand washing facilities are in Zambia, where Platinum Foundation has sponsored over 150 children.

Objective

The objective of installing handwashing facilities into educational centres is to give children the opportunity to practise hygiene. We know that clean water, along with decent sanitation and hygiene, are very effective in reducing poverty. It can help save lives, drive economic growth, keep kids in school and increase opportunities for women and girls.

PROJECT PARTNER

World Vision is our project partner for this project. World Vision is an international community development organisation that has been engaging people to work towards eliminating poverty and its causes for six decades. World Vision provides short- and long-term assistance for 100 million people worldwide. Through relief and development, policy, advocacy and change, collaboration, education about poverty, and emphasis on personal growth, social justice and spiritual values, World Vision works with people of all cultures, faiths and backgrounds to achieve transformation. The overall vision is to give communities a ‘hand up’ not a ‘hand out’ by resourcing and upskilling the community to develop itself and be self-sufficient once World Vision exits the area
