Dominican Republic In-Country Update
Our distribution partner World Water Relief (WWR) has an update for us! Since receiving the soap shipment last fall, 6000 students, teachers, administrators, janitors, and cooks in the Dominican Republic have benefited from the addition of soap to their WASH in Schools program. As you can see, they have developed a system whereby the soap is wrapped in mesh netting, tied to a rope, and then nailed to the wall above the drinking water stations. The soap bags are refilled each week.
Each of the schools working with WWR with receives hygiene education geared toward the youth the larger community.
