Tippy-Taps

School children gather around several large plastic bottles of water hung from a wooden crossbeam for hand washing.

Handwashing stations, also called Tippy-Taps, are a low-cost solution for schools that do not otherwise have a place for children to clean their hands during the school day. Fashioned from low-cost and readily found materials, they are easy to install and maintain.

In partnership with Soluciones Comunitarias Nicaragua, JustHope has installed handwashing stations in almost every school in Chacraseca. In addition to installing Tippy-Taps, the partners teach children and teachers the importance of hygiene and sanitation.
