Global Handwashing Day 2020
Global Handwashing Day - October 15, 2020
With the COVID-19 crisis so prominent in the news, a number of organizations are making an extra effort to promote handwashing with soap this year. They have developed resources that we can use every day when we are teaching about the importance of handwashing.
The official website of Global Handwashing Day has some excellent resources to increase awareness, advocate for action, and initiate behavioural change. Go to https://globalhandwashing.org/resources-main/ to see what is available.
USAID Virtual Event and Resources
USAID is encouraging us to spread the word about handwashing from Oct 8 - 15. They have planned a virtual event featuring speakers from USAID, the Republic of Ghana, and more on October 14. For more information and to register for this free virtual event Register Here.
It is the creative people at Global Water 2020 that have taken a very interesting approach to educate about handwashing.
