An innovative campaign for implementing cleanliness and hygiene in society was started at block panchayats.

Taking into consideration that the campaign to inculcate good health habits among the citizens has to start from the grassroot-level, the Anganwadi teachers were given training who in turn will educate their children in anganwadis.

Titled ‘Thenthulli’ (Honey Drop), the one-day training was given to 60-odd Anganwadi teachers under Edappally block panchayat. “Preserving hygiene has to be transformed into a culture by the individuals. This should start from the infancy stage where the anganwadi teachers can become motivators. So government conceptualised the programme to train the Anganwadi teachers first,” said Sumeera K.S, Block level resource person who led the training.

The teachers were trained to inculcate good habits among the children by telling stories, singing rhymes, riddles, staging plays.

To open the insight of the children, teachers should transform into infancy, she added. Resource persons also took classes held at Block Panchayat hall, Edappally. Aleyamma Issac, block panchayat president inaugurated the training which was attended by A V Maniappan, vice-president and Siju Thomas, block panchayat secretary. The next session of training for Anganwadi teachers will be held at Kalamassery on March 4.
