Footprints Orphanage
  • Community Outreach Work- teaching hygiene and water safety.


    As part of Footprint's community involvement - they hosted a training programme for 150 children in the local community to teach them the importance of safe, clean water and good hygiene. Best hand washing practices were taught in a fun and engaging manner which the children loved.

    They all had a complimentary meal of beans ans rice and returned home with 5 ltrs of fresh, clean drinking water. They also had a small bar of soap and a packet of biscuits.

    The children of Footprints delivered the sessions, with Joseph explaining the use of 'water guard. Hassan. Kijana and Anna helped with demonstrations. Sara talked about the importance of keeping nails cut short.

    Kerry was proud of how they have all grown in confidence and know how important it is to share their knowledge with local children. She was particularly proud of Sara, who 12 months ago joined Footprints as a traumatized little girl, but stood proud and confident to help others.

    Footprints truely is a special place.
