NGO Introduces Wash Initiative To Improve Students' Hygiene

The Initiative for Advancement of Ethical Standards (INADES), a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) on Monday introduced Wash for Students Initiative project in a bid to improve hygiene in schools.

Omotayo Agbaje, the INADES Head of Operations, in his remark at the pilot project in Lagos, said the project was intended to provide sanitation awareness and infrastructure among students both in school and at home

Agabje during the event held at Joseph’s Junior Secondary school, Mushin, Lagos, assured that INADES would sensitize students in major secondary schools in the state on the relevance of sanitation. 

“We will be going to major schools across the six education districts, indicating all it takes about sanitation and hygiene, to see how we can work and develop it more in students.

“We are looking at these students, leaders of tomorrow, knowing that when they are healthy, the future will be brighter.

“That is the reason behind this educational programme and charity work.

“Public schools are among the best places to spread this information and create the awareness of attaining a clean environment,” he said.

He also pledged that the organisation would promote a clean environment by restoring water pumps in the school to ensure a steady water supply.

In response, the principal of the school, Titilayo Oluwoga commended the organisation for the initiative, noting that the sensitisation would assist in increasing the students' knowledge about sanitation. 

“We really appreciate INADES for this laudable initiative. They are going to fix the pumps, and we will have enough washing points for students and members of staff to be using.

“One of the most effective ways to eradicate the spread of germs and diseases is the simple act of handwashing with water and soap.

“This is a project that this NGO has taken up, and the idea is to inculcate in us this practice and general hygiene lifestyle,” she said.

She further appreciated the organisation for choosing the school for the pilot project and for distributing school bags to no fewer than 400 students.
