Teeth-cleaning in Perú

In Peru for the 2nd year in a row, we have been able to provide every inicial child in our three schools with a toothbrush. The kids keep their individual and cups at the school and everyday the volunteers help them brush their teeth. It’s not only an important habit for them to learn but it’s a fun one too!

The new batch of inicialers came at the start of this school year with some unhealthy baby teeth. But thankfully due to our dental health program our kids will learn how to brush their teeth and will be doing it everyday – which will lead to even more beautiful smiles at Chiguata, Truinfo and Maldonado.
