We take a look at the Story of Sarfaraz from Varanasi who was suffering from chronic diarrhoea and how his life got changed after his school Ghaushabad Primary School adopted hygiene curriculum. The widespread adoption of safe hygiene practices through an interactive, child-centred, participatory approach helps inculcate life skills and empowers school children to make good choices. Programs like Dettol Hygiene Curriculum by NDTV Banega Swachh India, WASH in schools by Water Aid India, PLAN India's WASH Programme are focusing on improving hygiene and health across schools all over India, where every year, diarrhoea kills about 1.2 lakh children. Sarfaraz's story makes for an interesting inclusion in school syllabi and more schools should come on board and adopt hygiene curriculum.
