Getting dirty hands clean on over 400 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.
