School children wash their hands during an activity to mark the third annual Global Handwashing Day at Thirime primary school in Kikuyu, near Kenya's capital of Nairobi, on Oct. 15. According to organizers, 19,352 schoolchildren participated in the event in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most number of people washing hands at a single venue. India made it to the Guinness Book of World Records with 15,150 students gathered in Chennai as part of the World Handwashing Day in 2009, being recognized as a record.
