Hello Fellow Stakeholders,
"Thank you so much for the hygiene kits. My co-teacher and I teach a cohort labeled as Multilingual SLIFE (Students with Limited or Interrupted Formal Education). We have students from Afghanistan, Haiti, Brazil, Liberia, and Pakistan this year. The hygiene kits have allowed us to not only teach and talk about the importance of consistent hygiene practices, but also support them in meeting the needs of their changing bodies.
When my co-teacher and I conduct home visits, we always take the family a hygiene kit. Over the years we noticed that some of our families don't have soap in their bathrooms at the sink. Many of the families are living in a bedroom and sharing the bathroom/apartment with several other families. The items you all are donating has a direct impact for these families who aren't able to spend on these luxuries.
Prior to this work, I didn't think of hand soap, deodorant, and laundry detergent as luxuries but they are for so many of our families. I say all of this to say that your donations are very much appreciated and are making a huge difference for our students.
If you have had or currently have a middle schooler then you know how important the items you're donating are for them. Thank you. مننه. Mèsi. Merci. Obrigada. متشکرم.
