Global Handwashing Day

Each year on October 15th, over 200 million people in more than 100 countries are involved in Global Handwashing Day (GHD) celebrations! Handwashing with soap is the most effective and inexpensive way to prevent diarrheal and acute respiratory infections, which take the lives of millions of children in developing countries every year and, together, are responsible for the majority of all child deaths. Despite its lifesaving potential, handwashing with soap is both seldom practiced and difficult to promote. Seeds of Hope works to teach proper hygiene and sanitation through community workshops, and tippy-tap trainings and installations. We are working to create simple changes in handwashing behavior that are critical to meeting GHD’s Millennium Development Goal of reducing deaths among children under the age of five by two-thirds by 2015.
