Benin: Model Moms

Benin Model MomsA mother is interviewed as part of the model moms contest.WASHplus implementing partner in Benin ABMS/PSI conducted an informal assessment via simple questionnaire and observations of any hygiene behavior changes in the two peri-urban pilot neighborhoods of Cotonou. This allowed outreach workers to observe improvements in hygiene practices the project is advocating, such as handwashing and point-of-use water treatment, and to select candidates for “Model Mother.” Of the 300 mothers assessed, 123 had perfect scores on a scale of one to 10, with 72 others close behind. Winners will be announced soon with much fanfare to continue to motivate others.
