Self Hygiene and Well Being – Good health not only means perusing physical activities, but also practicing self hygiene. AWARENESS works closely with various administrative departments to advocate importance of self hygiene and well being. Over a period we have learnt that this behaviour change must be inculcated in children at a young age to make it a part of their lifestyle. Keeping this in mind we have reached out to some of the government institutions to train the kids on self hygiene and well being. We are associated with the tribal welfare Board of Tamil Nadu and there are 350 Schools in Tamil Nadu handled by this department.

AWARENESS conducts workshops for Behaviour Change towards self hygiene across these schools. With a millennium development goal of developing safe drinking water and basic sanitation, we provide sustainable and integrated services across the region. We try and encourage community leadership breaking the barriers of unsafe hygiene practices.
