The partners launched contests in the schools in which students could submit an art piece (e.g. photos, songs, drawings, paintings) each containing a message about the importance of hand hygiene. Other activities included building “tippy taps” and staging “handwashing mob” demonstrations.

The week concluded with a parade through the Eastern Samar Capital and showcasing the winners from the art competition.
