The infrastructure for good hygiene practices and education is an essential piece to keep children healthy and attending school. WASH volunteers help under resourced schools that lack basic health infrastructure by physically constructing hand washing stations and implementing fun and informative workshops to help change hygiene behavior. All infrastructure projects are supported by local masons.
Clear vision is an essential part to both classroom learning, in-home study and overall health. Vision volunteers work with local professionals to conduct eye clinics at under resourced schools. They provide quality vision screenings and distribute eyeglasses to students in need. Make your mark to give children around the world the gift of sight.
Dental hygiene is an essential part of a child's well-being and often neglected in under resourced communities due to resources and education. Dental volunteers work with local staff to distribute toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste to in need school children while facilitating fun and enriching workshops. Dental screenings are also done with larger groups in partnership with local dentists. Help improve oral health and bring a smile to a child's face.
