Good news for thousands of public elementary students this school year! Students can now look forward not only to freshly-painted classrooms and new chairs, but more importantly, with clean, germ-free and accessible comfort rooms.
Unilever Philippines and its Domex 1M Clean Toilets Movement has partnered with Department of Education’s Brigada Eskwela with an aim to eliminate diarrhea-causing germs in schools’ comfort rooms.
General Gregorio Del Pilar Elementary School was the first school visited by Unilever Philippines to conduct proper toilet sanitation training among janitorial staff, teachers and voluteer parents of students. Domex toilet products were turned over to the officials to ensure comfort rooms cleanliness through out the school year. An actual clean up of the comfort rooms followed after the handover ceremony.
