A Culture of Cleanliness

Didi Hara Village, Ethiopia


The past month, our Transformational Community Development (TCD) workers have been working on wellness. Women from Dida Hara Village took our wellness training. After the training, twelve women from this village prepared a toilet in their compound. Besides this, they have also prepared a handwashing container near the toilets. After they constructed this, we asked the women about the importance of the toilet. They told us, “Life before was difficult as everybody was pooping everywhere.  That makes us ill and our children sick, every time. Now we are very sure that, according to the wellness training, this will minimize and the children and the elders will become healthy.”
