At the donation event held in Haryana, India earlier this year, JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) taught children the importance of the routine practice of handwashing, nail cleaning, and mask-wearing and gave them hygiene products like nail clippers and soap donated by participating donors. They also trained community leaders to support and help children get in the habit of hand hygiene.
Commenting on the initiative, Dhananjay Singh - Leader of SATO India said, “We are pleased to be part of the Achhi Aadat campaign as donating to the initiative is an investment in the future of our children. The Achhi Aadat campaign will make an impact not only in the lives of the children by bringing access to handwashing, but the ongoing campaign will bring the same awareness to both urban and rural areas with a strong focus on communities, schools, and hospitals where JICA has built relationships through cooperation with Japanese companies and local nonprofit organizations.”
