Global Hand­wash­ing Day — Octo­ber 15th

Global Hand­wash­ing Day was orig­i­nally cre­ated for chil­dren and schools, but can be cel­e­brated by any­one pro­mot­ing hand­wash­ing with soap. Each year on Octo­ber 15, over 200 mil­lion peo­ple are involved in cel­e­bra­tions in over 100 coun­tries around the world

Hand­wash­ing with soap is the most effec­tive & inex­pen­sive way to pre­vent infec­tions, which take the lives of mil­lions of chil­dren in devel­op­ing countries.

This year, Global Hand­wash­ing Day cel­e­brates the power that every­one has to save lives and cre­ate health­ier com­mu­ni­ties through hand­wash­ing with soap. The orga­ni­za­tion behind Global Hand­wash­ing Day, the Global Public-​Private Part­ner­ship for Hand­wash­ing (PPPHW) and its part­ners, encour­ages every­one to join in the cel­e­bra­tion and pro­mote hand­wash­ing with soap.

The power is in your hands!
