The project is designed towards addressing and engaging the many challenges posed by poor sanitation and hygiene practices among people living in and around Monrovia, Liberia by the means of engaging the community through community awareness campaign to disseminate sanitation and community and personal hygiene promotional health messages, conducting of health promotional seminars, organizing of panel discussions to promote good sanitation and hygiene practices among citizens, and training of youths to serve as ambassadors of change in promoting a healthy sanitation and hygiene practices in their respective communities and homes. Finding such solutions to the poor sanitation and hygiene practices among people within the reach of Monrovia where these challenges are very common is just worth it for the maintenance of the health and wellness of the people. It is very important in that it would assist the population to appreciate the value in understanding their health needs and making healthy living (sanitation and hygiene) a major daily priority.
Henceforth, undertaking this project would help bridge the gap in knowledge between the poor and middle-high income earners relative to practicing enhanced sanitation and hygiene.
