Health

Ensuring our children’s health is a keystone of our mission.  Thanks to your  in-kind donations, students receive  a daily multivitamin upon entering our program and/or a vitamin fortified meal.

We have taught the children the importance of washing their hands in order to prevent illness.  The children always wash their hands at our handwashing station before eating and after using the bathrooms.  We also educate the children about things like dental health, and distribute toothbrushes and toothpaste as much as possible

We provide the children a place to come for unlimited filtered drinking water, something they otherwise do not have access to at home.

We host medical brigades twice yearly in partnership with Blessback Worldwide, and keep ongoing medical records of each child.
