College students from the Global Public Health Scholars program at University of Maryland, College Park visited the Center for Young Children (CYC), a laboratory school on the UMCP campus. Children at the CYC arrived in the morning and make their way to the child-sized sinks to wash. They brought the skill home reminding their families to wash hands after they use the bathroom and before dinner. Global Public Health Scholars visited the Kindergarten class to sing handwashing songs, lead a hand washing educational activity using “glo-germ”, and work with the children to make a beautiful Global Handwashing Day banner. All of the children in the classroom and all of the Global Public Health Scholars were informed about Global Handwashing Day, which raised awareness of the impact of handwashing and alerted children, college students, and parents about how GHD is celebrated worldwide.
