The Rotaract Club of Kandy took a proactive step towards improving oral health among children with our pioneering project, සෙනෙහසේ සිනහව. The initiative aimed to raise awareness about oral health and hygiene while providing dental cleanups for numerous school children. Held at the National Youth Corps Senkadagala on November 30th, 2022, this event brought together medical professionals and volunteers to make a significant impact on children’s dental well-being.
The primary objective of the project was to educate and empower young minds about the importance of oral hygiene. With a focus on preventive care, the Rotaract Club of Kandy aimed to equip children with the knowledge and tools necessary for maintaining good oral health throughout their lives. The project fostered a sense of responsibility among the children, inspiring them to adopt healthy habits and prioritize regular dental care.
The awareness session conducted during the event featured engaging presentations and interactive discussions, capturing the attention of the young participants. Experienced dental professionals addressed the gathering, sharing valuable insights on oral hygiene techniques, the significance of brushing and flossing, and the impact of a balanced diet on dental health. The children actively participated, eagerly absorbing the knowledge imparted by these experts.
The event was a resounding success, as the Rotaract Club of Kandy managed to reach a significant number of children, making a lasting impact on their oral health and overall well-being. By focusing on preventive measures and creating awareness, the club strives to mitigate dental problems that often arise due to a lack of knowledge or access to dental care.
The project’s success would not have been possible without the dedicated efforts of the Rotaract Club of Kandy, the National Youth Corps Senkadagala, and the participation of the medical professionals who generously volunteered their time and expertise. Their collective commitment to improving children’s oral health is commendable and sets a remarkable example for other organizations to follow.
The සෙනෙහසේ සිනහව project by the Rotaract Club of Kandy stands as a testament to the power of community-driven initiatives. By instilling knowledge and fostering healthy habits at an early age, this project not only ensures brighter smiles but also contributes to the overall well-being and confidence of the children involved. It is through such initiatives that we can build a healthier, happier future for the younger generation.
