#CulturePH - All Hands Together for Global Handwashing Day as Safeguard, Manila Water Foundation, and DepEd complete 285 Handwashing Facilities for Public Schools

Key Milestone Reached in the Fight Against Germs

Procter & Gamble's flagship brand, Safeguard, along with its dependable partners Manila Water Foundation (MWF) and the Department of Education (DepEd), completed the construction of 285 handwashing facilities in public schools in time for Global Handwashing Day, heralding the impending full reopening of face-to-face classes.

These facilities help Safeguard and MWF achieve their objective of having all Metro Manila schools on track to receive a star rating from the DepEd's Wash in Schools (WinS) program. Additionally, Safeguard contributed goods that would help with proper handwashing.

All of them were motivated by Safeguard's unwavering dedication to placing a high priority on the health and cleanliness of Filipinos, especially schoolchildren who are the future of the country.

Celebrating Global Handwashing Day Hand-in-Hand and Face-to-Face 

Global Handwashing Day was all the more meaningful as the P&G Safeguard team led by Brand Director Amna Abbas, Quezon City's Vice Mayor Gian Sotto, and MWF director Reginald Andal celebrated together in Quezon City—one of the biggest beneficiaries of SAFEWash program. The celebration even had its virtual run on the MWF Facebook page where more Filipinos tuned in to learn about the importance of proper handwashing. 

In his partnership message, Aldrich Gopal, Vice President for P&G Beauty Care and Brand Operations, reminded everyone that “the threat of germs and diseases never left us, even as we move on to the new normal. The same germs can cause diseases that lead to school absences. However, with the power of a single SAFEwash, we can remove most of those diseases. So, when we make regular handwashing a part of our students’ lives, we also protect them from missing opportunities that would lead them to success in the future.”

A Continuous Journey to 100% All-Star Rating for Public Schools in the Metro

The newly constructed facilities and donations go beyond ensuring our schools are on track to becoming star-rated. They also serve as a reminder to Filipinos, especially the young ones, to cultivate a proper handwashing culture in and out of school. 

Together, let’s make it our joint mission to make every wash a SAFEwash for a safer nation.
