PROMOTING STUDENT HEALTH & HYGIENE AT BAHARCHARA HIGH SCHOOL, CHITTAGONG

 

Located 1-1/2 km from Bay of Bengal in one of the most cyclone prone region, Baharchara Ratnapur High School serves a very poor area with one of the lowest income range. The school has 864 students, all from very poor family.  65% of the students are female.  95% of the families use open toilet and, as a result, have persistent health problem.  A key objective of this project is to create health & hygiene awareness among the students and their families and implement measures to improve their hygiene condition.  A secondary objective was to motivate students to do better by recognizing them and rewarding them for their good results and perseverance.

BACHAO’s funding was used to:

   ·    Provide 300 Ring Toilets in 2017 to top ranking students of each of the
        5 classes, 5th through 10th

   ·    Built 3 female toilets bringing the total toilets for 600+ female students from 1 to 4
   ·    Provide school bags to top 25 students of each class
