Waterborne diseases threats: CECOSDA sensitizes primary school pupils in Maroua

Being easily assimilated to life in some areas, water, due to some realities in other localities, appears as a threat to life. The Far-North Region as its counterparts of the Northern-Cameroon faces that sad reality. Indeed, with a dry season of eight out of the twelve uses months of the year, the people of this region find themselves forced into some water practices generally hazardous for their health and hygiene. As an illustration, due to water scarcity, hand washing is akin to a luxury; or it is easy to find children and animals drinking from the same source.

 

From the above, children, because of their fragility and the high water demand related to their healthy growth, are the first victims of waterborne diseases. To remedy this situation, CECOSDA decided to target pupils as actors for the reduction of waterborne diseases as part of its "Sustainable Future" project. A wide awareness campaign within Maroua’s government primary schools was organized.

Domayo Government Primary School hosted the first edition of this campaign. With the overall aim to raise children’s awareness on the importance of water and the respect of basic hygiene, CECOSDA team held an educative talk with the pupils. During exchanges, emphasis was laid on drinking water control, washing of hands, used containers and raw vegetables.  

 

The last stage of the meeting was expected to be restitutive and practical for pupils. The latter, through emulatives exercises, demonstrated knowledge acquired. CECOSDA’s team therefore evaluated and gave little prizes for the best hands washed, the cleanest container washed, the best project on proper conservation of domestic water and the best awareness raising message on waterborne diseases. Satisfied with this initiative, the school Headmaster requested CECOSDA to popularize such an experience throughout the Region, to make Far-North Region school pupils, true eco-citizens, actively involved in the construction of a sustainable Cameroon.
