Making children the change agents

Thelma Tazviwana is a member of the Health Club in Dotito Primary School, Mount Darwin. Children are the best change agents at both home and in the community. Red Cross Red Crescent believe that if we target the children, they will in turn bring change in the family and thereby the entire community. Health clubs train school children in hygiene and sanitation and enhance their involvement as change agents in their respective households and communities.
Access to safe water and sanitation, combined with improved hygiene awareness and practices are crucial to strengthening community health, resilience, and preserving human dignity. We need to get the balance right between action on sanitation and water.
