Happy Learners Project is an initiative that uses visual aid, poems, and rhyme to teach and create hand-wash and health education awareness in order to stop the spread of communicable diseases, support school attendance, and promote personal hygiene among primary school children in Northern Nigeria.
Do you know that according to the World Health Organization's report 2019, more than 10 million children die each year globally, most from preventable causes and almost all in poor countries of the world? And of these deaths, Nigeria is one of the 6 countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia which contributes 80 percent to this children's annual mortality rate.
Children under the age of 14 years in rural communities in Northern Nigeria are disproportionately affected by water-borne diseases. This causes them to lose weeks of their academic studies and thereby perform poorly academically due to ill-health.
At Happy Learners’ Project, we are on a mission to stop children’s death from preventable communicable diseases through the promotion of a culture of personal hygiene among school children with the help of arts, literature, and music.
