Education about hygiene
Hi-Gene connects to existing waterprojects, which means we focus on a community which already has clean and save water. For a good use of clean water, the community has to have knowledge about hygiene. This knowledge isn’t available.
To illustrate this: if one puts clean water in a dirty jerry can, the water will be polluted and by drinking it, you still can get ill. When a community has water, they have to learn that washing your hands after using the toilet is very important for a good health.
When you know why something is important, it motivates to act accordingly. Hi-Gene develops an educational program on the basis of pictograms. With this method every child, or every adult will become familiar with hygiene.
