Become a schools ambassador
We are currently looking for volunteers to inspire, motivate and support young people to promote the life changing work of Sanitation First.
Our schools programme aims to help children in the UK understand what life is like for children in the developing world who don’t have any toilets or clean water. We tie-in the key themes from our work with the national curriculum: health, hygiene, human geography and culture, in a way that is fun and memorable.
The lack of toilets facilities in schools in India leave children open to obvious health risks and the danger of harassment and attack. Research has shown that 23% of girls drop out of school once they reach puberty and those who stay miss around five days of school a month during their periods due to lack of privacy and facilities.
Why do it?
Receive training to fully understand Sanitation First’s work.
Use and gain skills like public speaking, working with different age groups, and volunteering for a charity. Access to Sanitation First resources for you to use including flyers, leaflets and presentations on different aspects of our work. The chance to meet our staff and other like-minded volunteers, a great opportunity to inspire and engage young people in your community.
