Reflecting on Our Results in Agua Escondida
A Real Win for Students
Proper handwashing hygiene has been found to reduce the incidence of diarrheal disease by 31% (5), and Pueblo a Pueblo’s recent efforts have given students at Agua Escondida both the education and the infrastructure they need to protect themselves. Our post-intervention evaluation confirms a happier, healthier school, where students experience fewer interruptions to their education.
