Tippy Tap

Tippy Tap

$35


Description

Hand washing can dramatically reduce the spread of disease and improve the health of a community. A tippy tap is a simple set-up that enables people to wash their hands easily, even when water is scarce. This gift also includes health and hygiene training.

How your gift helps

Don’t forget to wash your hands! It’s very simple, but the act of hand washing can dramatically reduce the spread of disease and improve the health of a community. However, in many villages in Mozambique, the lack of running water limits people from being able to do this basic task.

A tippy tap is a simple set-up that sits next to the toilet, along with some soap, enabling people to wash their hands easily, even when water is scarce. TEAR's Christian partner Oasis Mozambique has been teaching women involved in their care groups how to make their own tippy taps from jerry cans, which tip out a small amount of water.

Oasis also share other important hygiene, health and nutrition messages with the women’s care groups, who then pass the information on to their own communities.
