We’ve never had much success in Ashanti, partly because the village children always knock the tap over within a a few days of it being set up.

Now we’ve found a second reason.  In Ashanti they prefer to use Veronica buckets, which have a tap attached. You can knock it open with your elbow and let it run for just the amount of water you need. .
