After being engaged and collecting experience in various WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) programmes, ECCA (Environmental Camps for Conservation Awareness) got engaged in an anti-head lice project implemented in 7 schools of the Lalitpur district in Nepal. The project is being conducted in technical and financial partnership with Antenna. It will be reproduced in the Dolakha district (north of Kathmandu) in April – May 2023, financed again by German NGOs.

The presence of head lice in students is problematic because of its social, emotional and academic consequences, including social boycott, psychological distress and unnecessary school absenteeism. For more information, see our website.
