On Friday, July 8, 2011, Sta. Ana Elementary School (SAES) had its first WASH (Water, Sanitation, Hygiene) Day. Following the completion of comfort room repairs at Sta. Ana Elementary School (SAES), this event marked the culmination of the USAID-Rotary Pasig River Improvement Project’s efforts to improve health and sanitation in Sta. Ana by promoting proper handwashing with soap and water. Despite the fickle weather alternating between downpour and relatively clear skies, approximately 2,400 students ranging from kinder to sixth grade participated in handwashing demonstrations. In addition to handwashing demonstrations, the Project Team distributed hygiene kits inclusive of soap, a toothbrush and a year supply of toothpaste to each student in the morning sections.
