Hygiene and Sanitation

Polycom Development has also been able to promote hygiene and sanitation in the areas we operate in within kibera .Through community based research we map out areas which need attention and organize cleaning activities in those places mostly schools .
Giving out detergents at school had significant impact as students no longer have to worry about sanitation facilities while they are at school or having cases of infections such as Urinary tract infection
Given the multiple challenges adolescent girls face,it is evident that promoting menstrual hygiene management is not only a sanitation matter; it is also an important step towards safeguarding the dignity ,bodily integrity and overall life opportunities of adolescent girls.
