Nascent educates children on the importance of sanitation (especially hand-washing) to maintaining good health, using rural schools as a doorway to effect broad social change.
As part of our implementation of the USDA’s Food for Education program in Cameroon, Nascent is constructing wells and handwashing stations in 27 schools, and bathrooms and kitchens in 92 others.
Nascent has utilized nutrition interventions in Cameroon and Zambia, as well de-worming to mitigate the risks of drinking unclean water and bolster health. Our school gardens initiatives further build physical resilience in children.
The cumulative effect of our three pronged strategy is significant increases in community wide use of sanitary practices such as handwashing by children, the reduction of diseases caused by unclean water such as dysentery and improved health and vitality and attentiveness in school as a result of more robust physical systems in children.
As an organization that often operates in unstable societies, we have seen the destruction that can follow when civility is lost and violent measures are adopted. Thus, we reiterate our support for peaceful social engagement and respect for democratic principles and institutions.
