Join us 11 October to learn about how World Vision and Sesame Workshop are partnering to help children and families practice healthy hygiene behaviours.

In honour of Global Handwashing Day (15 October) and the theme " Our Hands, Our Future," World Vision, together with our partner, Sesame Workshop (the non-profit educational organisation behind Sesame Street) is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, 11 October, at 1300h UTC, to learn about the WASHUP! programme.

WASH UP! is a multi-media, school- and centre-based programme that uses engaging learning and teaching materials to educate children and caregivers about positive health behaviours related to water, sanitation and hygiene.

During the webinar, we will hear from Abby Bucuvalas, Senior Director of Educational Programs, International Social Impact, Sesame Workshop as well as from World Vision Zambia and World Vision Lebanon, two countries who are currently implementing WASHUP!


Global Handwashing Day (15 October) is a global advocacy day dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing with soap as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives. Global Handwashing Day is an opportunity to design, test, and replicate creative ways to encourage people to wash their hands at critical times.

Check out this new video from World Vision about WASH in healthfacilities, focusing on rural Mali. Access to safe water in developing countries is still an issue, and an even bigger issue in healthcare facilities where soap and water are not available for hand washing. The World Health Organization estimates that the lives of 400,000 babies can be saved each year just by these facilities having knowledge of better hygienic practices.
