Global Handwashing Day

Global Handwashing Day (GHD) was initiated in 2008 and is today endorsed by numerous governments and NGO’s including Rotary International.

GHD is aimed at raising awareness and understanding of the importance of washing hands with soap as a means of reducing and preventing the spread of contagious diseases. On the 15th October this year Rotary Club Am Kap joined this important initiative by pinning posters in the courtyard and within the school buildings of Sea Point High School, one of the schools in our district which we are currently sponsoring. The scholars were informed in an informal way of the necessity and benefits of constant hand-washing as a part of their personal hygiene, including before and after using the toilet and before handling food.
