THE STORY:

1.7 billion children suffer from diarrhea each year. It is one of the leading killers of children under the age of five, and is so dangerous because it easily spreads from kid to kid. Diarrhea is not only a leading killer, but it is also extremely debilitating for children, depleting them of essential nutrients, keeping them out of school, and preventing them from learning when they are in school.

This illness is totally preventable, and hand washing is the most cost effective solution. This educational video uses humor and culturally relevant situations to teach children in schools how germs spread, and why hand washing is important. The video will be distributed to impoverished areas throughout Ghana, starting in Accra and Kumasi. A study in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that a video about hand washing shown to school children in China reduced the infection rate of parasitic worms--a leading cause of diarrhea--by 50%

With proper funding we can have similar results, saving the lives and improving the health of thousands of children. $15,000 will cover the cost of video production, and initial distribution of the video, via schools, to 10,000 children. Please help make this possible!
