Orbus WASH Manual is a publication created to promote hygienic practices while providing useful and practical information on prevention of diseases associated with poor facilities and lack of hygienic practices. The acronym – WASH was derived from Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, and therefore our manual is entitled the O’WASH Campaign (with the ‘O’ standing for Orbus). We plan to educate and distribute the manuals to 30,000 students in low income schools and communities within Nigeria.
