A Matchbox, Candle, String, Nail, Sticks & Soap: That’s All You Need To Save Millions Of Lives.

Did you know that millions of deaths each year can be saved by just the simple act of washing hands with soap? Over 2.2 million children under the age of 5 die every year from diseases like diarrhoea and pneumonia, the top two killers of young children across the world. Although we clean our hands with water, very few use soap to wash hands.

Seen here is a disarmingly simple idea to drive the use of soap for hand-washing in public places. No running water or sink? Just collect a few every day objects to set up the Tippy Tap, a low tech, low cost, water-saving hand washing device.
