The shower bus visits I-India’s School on Wheels street centres daily and provides the children there with an on-the spot shower. 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. Currently the project is sutained by the general donation to I-India.
