Leading hygiene brand Savlon has unveiled Savlon Swasth India Mission, a programme designed to encourage behavioural change towards washing hands amongst children through various engaging and entertaining educational initiatives in schools.  In line with Savlon Swasth India’s proposition of ‘Healthier Kids, Stronger India’, the programme introduces interactive activities including a series of storytelling and visual engagement that educate and encourage children to adopt good hand hygiene practices.


On the eve of Children’s Day, Savlon Swasth India Mission introduced an engagement with Savlon Healthy Hands Chalk Sticks – a set of unique chalk sticks infused with cleansers like soap. The chalk sticks are designed to engage children in primary schools and emphasise the importance of washing hands before eating.


Sharing his thoughts, Sameer Satpathy, Chief Executive, Personal Care Products Business, ITC Limited, stated: “Hand hygiene is a critical issue. We believe, to induce behavioural change among children, the process of communication and education has to be fun, engaging and memorable. In that context, Savlon Swasth India’s ‘Healthy Hands Chalk Sticks’ is a simple yet interesting innovation. It is an engaging way to educate children on the importance of washing hands especially before eating. This is one of the various educational tools deployed by the Savlon Swasth India team to help initiate children into the habit of washing hands.”


Commented Harshad Rajadhyaksha, ECD Ogilvy Mumbai, on the initiative:  “Before anything else, I would like to really thank the client who partnered us to make this happen. It wasn’t easy but they never made us feel it was impossible. Savlon is on a great path and we intend to take the brand from strength to strength.”


Added Kainaz Karmakar, ECD Ogilvy Mumbai: “If we can use our skills of ideation to make a difference to not just the brands but the lives of people, it’s a special kind of joy. The ‘Healthy Hands Chalk Sticks’ initiative sets out to do just that. Even if one kid is saved from an illness because of this initiative we will all go home happy.”
