The summer club programme represents an approach for communicating health related information to children in a simple manner. It is held during the summer vacation utilizing the school as its institutional base and the teachers, after receiving training, as the hygiene promoters. The perspectives adopted included: a. health, sanitation and the environment within a holistic approach; b. contextualizing notions of health and sanitation to be compatible with and relevant to the people involved; c. achieving a prior understanding of patterns and perceptions shared by villagers; d. developing the potential of integrated action among and between villagers and government representatives (to maintain the momentum of initiated programmes); and e. aiming to disseminate information for utilization. The latter entails testing different methodologies of each initiated programme to develop viable and effective models of action in the form of information packages for use by others.
