Spread the love

Koki Primary School is one of several schools in the Nation’s Capital to embrace the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene program called WaSH.

Deliberating on this concept, a motivational speech was organised today by Anglicare to empower students and promote healthy living.

The Anglicare PNG Child Protection team visited Koki Primary School this afternoon after visiting Kilakila and Kaugere Primary School during the week.

Their intention was to give motivational talks to students as part of their youth development campaign to protect children rights and promote healthy living.

National Development Bank Investment Chief Executive Officer, Desmond Yaninen, speaking as a motivational speaker challenged students to be an asset in life.

Anglicare Child Protection team leader, Priscilla Kee, said giving motivational speech to students will empower them to be successful in life through healthy living.

The program was initiated in 2014 by Anglicare and supported by the AusAid.

Like other schools in NCD, Koki Primary has embraced this concept and implemented it through its WaSH committees.

They encouraged students to wash hands after using the toilet, disposing rubbish in bins and cleaning toilets.

The team will visit Daugo Fisherman Island and Saint Francis Primary during the week.
