A hygiene promoter is a person who helps others improves their personal sanitation practices. She often travels to areas where high concentrations of citizens desperately require education on the benefits of practicing proper hygiene, such as third-world countries. She teaches lessons instructing people on what constitutes proper hygiene and if necessary, teaches them how to perform such acts. Her lessons are tailored to fit the needs of the communities she works with, often incorporating additional education to fit the needs of citizens with disabilities.

Based on these observations, he creates an effective plan of action designed to help the targeted group improve their hygiene practices. He’s responsible for finding appropriate spots in the community to hold educational sessions and determining if separate classes need to be set up for people of different genders or those with special needs.
