Thirteen year  Leonard Kalokol pose in his classroom at the AIC Lomil Primary school in Lomil in Turkana, Northen Kenya, 1 Oct 2014.In Northern Kenya, the new school year has brought lessons in facewashing for children. NGO Sightsavers and UnileverÕs health soap Lifebuoy, with the support of The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust (the Trust), are launching an innovative hygiene behaviour change programme. This programme aims to help eliminate the blinding eye disease trachoma in Kenya. The eye disease, caused by a bacterial infection, is easily spread from person to person by unwashed hands and flies.
