About 18 Lakh children under the age of 5 die each year from diarrheal diseases and pneumonia. These diseases can be easily avoided by inculcating the healthy practice of handwashing with soap. We can save 1 out of every 3 children who gets sick with diarrhoea and almost 1 out of every 5 from pneumonia by simply inducing this habit of handwashing. This Children’s day Savlon is unveiling “Savlon Swasth India Mission” to induce the habit of washing hands with soap in entertaining ways.

Washing hands with soap effectively remove germs and can help in improving the children’s presence in the school. Most of the time inducing good habits into children turns into a mundane process. Savlon is introducing a different chalk stick which can not only be used to write on slates to learn but can also be used to wash hands. A unique and simple innovation, which helps children practice handwashing without being forced.

The mission has already reached out to more than 3 Lac children and aims to reach 1 million children in a year. This Children’s day let’s make join Savlon Swasth India Mission and help children to learn a new healthy practice in an entertaining way!
