Kolo, Mohammed, Ali and Yousuf along..

Kolo, Mohammed, Ali and Yousuf along with other kids are extremely happy. Their joy knew no bounds as soon as they saw a real football. They love soccer and had been playing it with home made paper and plastic wrapped football, the local version often seen in rural parts of Nigeria. This was their first time that they had a real football in their hand.
These kids are Internally Displaced living in Custom Two IDP camp of Maiduguri, North-East Nigeria.
CIDAR has spread hygiene awareness here in this camp since the time of Cholera outbreak in 2017. In this process our team involved kids as well because they are the future, if they understand the importance of hygiene in our lives one whole generation will be benefited. So to ensure that the message passes to them profoundly, team CIDAR through the help of camp bulama (elder/chief) of the camp organized a group of kids who will not only follow hygiene practices in their daily lives but will spread it in their families as well. Kids have promised us that they will always wash their hands after coming from toilet, before eating food and after playing. They have also promised that they will not do open defecation and will tell their elders also not to do so. Kids have promised that they will use the toilets constructed for them for defecation and will use hand washing facilities as well. They have pledged that they will not waste water and will safely handle water.
Team CIDAR hopes and pray that these kids practice hygiene activities in their daily lives and become torch bearers for their communities.
