Hygiene Heroes: Teaching Health through Interactive Learning

Please donate today to help us with this project

Our focus is teaching health through songs and games.

Over the last 2 years, a team of UC Berkeley students under Haas Professor David Levine have developed a curriculum to teach preventative health in underprivileged regions. In prototyping our materials, we learned the most effective way to change behavior is through interactive styles of learning, such as stories, games, and songs. We now work with students and faculty at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo as well as local experts from Asia, Africa, and South America to improve our materials.


The last two summers we piloted our lessons in Chennai, India. The children enjoyed our material and more importantly, adopted healthier habits. We have adapted our curriculum to incorporate the researchers' feedback and suggestions.


We have started preliminary development on other health topics, such as Respiratory Infections, and Malaria.


We have a team of eight students working on various aspects of the project to teach as much basic health as possible and to also create the best developed educational activities.


The money will be used primarily to fund the printing and development of educational supplies as well as to pay a woman in India who does data collection and testing of our product. She is critical to our success as she is the one who gives us feedback on whether our activities are working or not.
