UNICEF & WASH United celebrate Global Handwashing Day 2017 in India

Team Swachh Bharat, the campaign co-led by UNICEF and WASH United, will celebrate Global Handwashing Day on October 13th from 09:00 am to 05:00 pm at the National Bal Bhawan with Swachh Haath Mela (“clean hand festival”) with approximately 850 students from government schools in Delhi and partners. During the festival,  children will have a chance to play the Action Kit games in a larger-than-life format and have other fun activities, like song, dance, and bubble-making. The event will be an exciting, for play-based learning on the topics of washing hands with soap after using a toilet and before eating.


Team Swachh Bharat is also developing a really catchy handwashing video for sharing on social media (the videos will be ready shortly and will be promoted on the Global Handwashing Day virtual events page).
