Expression of the hygiene program

091210_20091105_ptt_sallitivu_hyg_2   The hygiene education workshop was held in Sallitivu on 5th November, 2009. I would like to share some concentration which was looked in the event.

  The program was combining with a discussion and sharing the hygiene knowledge each other. The PHI is presented as a resource person for the program.

  I could observed that there were more female participants. And they attended in the workshop with their children. I asked a beneficiary named Sabapathy Pushpakumar, "why did you participate here with your children?" She said "I don't have anybody to look after my child when I come here yet, I don’t want to miss this meeting."

  After that, I got to know the reason why she tried to attend the program. Then, I discussed with her about that participation. She told us "the hygiene promotion is very important to us. We are facing the difficulties especially during the rainy session. If we get the hygiene knowledge prorperly, we can always be in a better environment.

  The participants were very helpful in the group and very active to discuss with the resource person as well.
