For some time now we’ve been encouraging local people to use tippy taps, a hands-free way to wash your hands when you don’t have a basin or ordinary taps. Here’s a picture.
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. .
