Millennium Fellowship Project: Easy Hygiene
Easy Hygiene is a project targeted at increasing Good Health and Wellbeing of the Public through maintenance of good hygiene thereby reducing the incidence of communicable diseases. As a result of this pandemic, physical outreaches to Primary and Secondary Schools may not be possible due to the need for Social Distancing,this would cause us to adopt other means such as involvement of Mass Media.
This would include Creating awareness for the webinars with posters, making of videos and uploading it on several platforms such as YouTube and blogs,the children would not be left out as we would create animations that teach them on hygiene. Posters will also be made which contain pictures illustrating various ways to maintain proper hygiene. After all of these activities we hope to have reached a minimum of a thousand people,who are more aware and enlightened on the importance of maintaining a good hygiene.
