Afyaplus handed over hand washing station at Kleruu secondary school

In a significant stride towards enhancing community health and hygiene, Afyaplus we are proudly announcing the handover of a third-hand washing station in 2024. This latest addition amplifies our Water in School project’s impact, now reaching 38 schools across the Iringa region.

Our latest addition finds its home at Klerru Secondary School in Iringa Mc, where we conducted awareness sessions emphasizing the importance of environmental hygiene and the critical role of handwashing in safeguarding health. These sessions shed light on the consequences of diseases stemming from poor hygienic practices, underscoring the urgent need for intervention.

With the capacity to serve 890 students (450 boys and 440 girls), this station marks an important milestone in cultivating a healthier, cleaner, and more resilient community. It aligns with our mission to instill behavior change and empower adolescent girls and young women through Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) services.

At Afyaplus, our vision extends beyond mere infrastructure; we aspire to see a responsible, healthy Tanzanian community free from waterborne diseases. This not only improves public health but also relieves the burden on government resources on treating preventable diseases, allowing for investment in other developmental activities.

The handover was attended by esteemed guests including Mr. Christopher Hingu, the SWASH Coordinator from Iringa Municipal Council, Mrs. Tijara Kupaza, the Ward Executive Officer of Gangilonga Ward, Mr. Hamis P. Omary, the Environmental Health Officer of Iringa Municipal, Afyaplus staff, school management, and students. Their positive participation exemplifies the collective effort required to achieve sustainable change.

We extend heartfelt gratitude to school leadership partners, donors, and stakeholders for their unwavering support in bringing this project to fruition. Together, we continue to champion health, hygiene, and empowerment in our communities.
