Every child deserves the opportunity to thrive. Children who are taught SHE ( Sanitation and hygiene education ) in schools have a greater chance of being open to new ideas and developing good habits in their most formative years. Using what they have learned and implementing quality hygiene and sanitation at home and school, these students become powerful agents of change.
