Words from Teachers
“The school health program is going on very well and has helped the learners to access medical services. Previously, when learners fell sick at school, they were sent home. Now, with the establishment of the health room and school health teacher training, children get quick help from the health facility. This has helped the learners regularly attend school, and as such, we have experienced a reduction in absenteeism. This is good for our school.”
Pauline Ngalande, School Health Worker
