Clean hands beat diseases

Date posted: 29 Jul 2016

Getting dirty hands clean on over 400 slum children before lunch can take ages!

Washing hands is new to virtually all the children when they join the school, but is a vital part of our health and hygiene training for them – to beat typhoid and other intestinal/tummy problems. For a long time we’ve been using jerrycans full of water mounted on sticks, but they break easily. We needed a solution… and now we have it!

We have built a permanent station with ten push-taps (low enough for our tiny nursery pupils) so the hand washing process is now much faster for the enormous queue of kids – and it saves staff time and effort setting them up, allowing them to concentrate on their main jobs.
