When I heard about hygiene, I decided to take care of my heath as a good habit, spending a happy time and become a role model for other students.


Sahid Hill Girls School: Setara (10 years old) (Spell needs to be confirmed)

Listening to the hygiene lecture properly, I am practicing this every day. Hygiene kit was distributed to each pupil, I understood that all of this kit was necessary to keep us in good health.

Saframan Shahid High School: Danish (16 years old) (Spell needs to be confirmed)

Before I learned hygiene lectures, I felt that I was not always behaving correctly, but understood that hygiene lecture is to protect ourselves from disease. I enjoy practicing what I learned. I thank JEN giving us the opportunity to learn hygiene education and training with the hygiene kit.

Chenaki High School: Sharkel (14 years old) (Spell needs to be confirmed)

Until I took the hygiene education training, I did not know the right way of the cleanness of the fingernails but now I understand. Taking clean care of your fingernails include clipping and removing the dirt from your fingernails. Under the long fingernails, bacteria maybe hiding and long dirty fingernails can cause infection when you scratch your skin. JEN gave us the opportunity about hygiene education and training through the teachers. Now I know how to take care of my fingernails properly.

Monitoring by JEN will continue until the end of the year.
