School Reconstruction and Hygiene Workshop

Now JEN's project is under way side by side with Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and with UN-OCHA (United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs). During the 7 months from April to the end of October this year, school reconstruction and hygiene promotion project are taken place in elementary schools and junior highs schools in Baghdad.

As of July 15th, 7 school buildings are completed reconstruction. We are planning to prepare the cleaning equipment, hygiene kits (such as toothbrush and soap) and the teaching materials which will be used at our hygiene workshop. The hygiene workshop will be started once the new term started.

Hygiene workshop has two purposes to prevent children from infectious disease transmitted by water such as cholera, and to help children’s understanding the importance to keep clean by cleaning their school. This project also helps to maintain the improved school environment by school reconstruction project. The cleaning equipments and hygiene kits will be handed to children so that they can practice studied hygienic knowledge at once.
