The aim of 'A Germ's Journey' project is to raise awareness of health hygiene. Through fun and interactive education we are teaching young children the importance of hand-washing for their own health and well-being. Our mission is to make 'A Germ's Journey' educational resources freely available at-the-point-of-access to children, educators and healthcare workers around the world.
