IKEA helps India schools improve sanitation and hygiene

October 24, 2010

I came across an article last week written by Angela Walker of UNICEF.

UNICEF is collaborating with the IKEA Social Initiative to improve sanitation and hygiene in schools in Uttar Pradesh (specifically Sonbhadra district). In over 210 schools in Sonbhadra are in the process of improving sanitation and teaching their students the importance of proper hygiene.

IKEA Social Initiative is partnering with UNICEF to promote the rights of every child to a healthy, secure childhood with access to quality education,” said Head of the Ikea Social Initiative Marianne Barner. “What once started as IKEA’s fight against child labour in the supply chain has developed into a broad commitment to create a better everyday life for the many children here in Uttar Pradesh and in communities throughout India.”

Here’s a post about the IKEA Social Initiative that Archana wrote.
