Khayelitsha, South Africa 2013 (August)

Following a progress review in August, it is clear that the supervised tooth brushing programme is producing positive results.  All the children now understand why it is important to look after their teeth, and they are reminding their teachers when it is tooth brushing time!  Many children have also been telling their families at home about the need to brush their teeth.  The programme is still in its initial stages as a pilot scheme; however it is clear that it will become a successful and sustainable programme.
