Bihar Handwashing Project - Lifebuoy School of 5

Unilever entered into a partnership with Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) and the Government of Bihar to promote handwashing behaviour change among children in Bihar. The main aim of the programme is to help prevent childhood illness and mortality. The partnership piloted the programme in two districts of Bihar – Begusarai and Khagaria, reaching out to nearly 1 million people. Unilever will now scale up the programme to cover more districts in Bihar and reach out to more number of people. Over the next three years, 45 million people are expected to benefit through this programme.
