Tippy Tap   $12.00

Tippy taps are low-cost handwashing stations for homes that lack a sink. Putting a tippy tap near the latrine reminds everyone to wash their hands after using the bathroom.

Why This Matters

Tippy taps are low cost yet highly effective in cutting back on diseases spread by dirty hands, either by eating or even just touching somone. The low-cost, low-maintenance construction means they can be replaced easily when worn out. Tippy taps are just part of FH's efforts to cut down on the spread of disease in a community; teachers, parents and children alike receive training about the importance of hand washing and when to do it (before meals, after using the bathroom, after changing a child's diaper, etc.)
