From February 1-3, community members from Mushili met at the Workers Compensation office received training on how to improve their hygiene and sanitation practices. The 53 participants shared how often people in the community suffered from skin rashes, stomach problems, and malaria. Together with the trainers, they identified the ways that disease were being transmitted, and learned how to stop them. Participants learned how to construct tippy taps for hand washing. A hygiene committee was formed, and they plan to conduct home visits throughout Mushili to spread the knowledge of proper hygiene to each household in the community.
