The shower bus visits I-India’s 6 School on Wheels street centres daily and provides the children there with an on-the spot shower once a week. Soap, shampoo, anti-lice lotion, combs and toothpaste are also provided, as is hygiene education. This service may be the only proper wash a child will get all week. In the long hot season from March to November when temperatures can reach 48C/120F, the showers become a joyful party for the children.
The project has been funded by Children of Tomorrow, The Netherlands. It was initiated by Embassy of Finland, New Delhi.
