Community Video: Men support handwashing in Maradi

Sahoura asks her neighbor, Mariama, why her children are less healthy than Mariama’s, even though Sahoura practices the 1000 days behaviors. Mariama explains that it is important for everyone to wash their hands with soap at critical times during the day to prevent infections. She takes Sahoura to see their water station for the household. He explains the proper method of handwashing at their Tippy Tap, and then Mariama shows how to wash the hands of her young child. Sahoura goes home and tells her husband what she has learned and asks him to build handwashing stations around their house

This video is part of a social and behavior change campaign by the USAID-funded Strengthening Partnerships, Results, and Innovations in Nutrition Globally (SPRING) project and Digital Green that aims to improve child nutrition through improved hygiene.
