Clean Hands with Tippy Taps
Tippy-taps are “hands-free”, low cost, water conserving hand washing stations that allows users to wash their hands in a hygienic and convenient manner.
Tippy-taps allow anyone with access to water, a “hands-free” way to make it flow. They are simple to build and maintain.
The primary challenge is to present ample education on the importance of hand washing, and to support people to administer this new habit. Our Path students and staff are educating people about the importance of hand washing and showing them how to build Tippy Taps of their own.
Tippy taps are operated by a foot lever and are built from local and easy-to-obtain materials such as stones, sticks, string, and jerry cans.
