THE SPATAP HANDWASHING BEHAVIOUR CHANGE SYSTEM IS VERY EFFECTIVE, SIMPLE AND LOW COST

WHY

This Project covers 5 of the 6 Causes of Rotary International:

  • Fighting disease
  • Providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
  • Saving mothers and children
  • Supporting education
  • Growing local economies

The ‘hand-washing habit’ is critical to building healthy prosperous communities. In schools, the delivery of a workshop and roster system is effective in creating the hand-wash habit. This habit is perpetuated to the new intake of students each year. Teaching children the importance of personal hygiene, influences their parents to adopt such practices at the home.

A workshop on SPATAP operation is delivered and children learn how to operate SPATAP and use its minimal water mode. This is perfect for water-scarce schools where every drop of water needs to be saved.

Soap is critical when having a handwash to remove the grease that contains the germs. SPATAP can conveniently store soap so it is easily accessible. Soap helps break down germ-carrying oils. Soap also facilitates rubbing and friction which can remove germs from the hands, and so that germs can be rinsed away with water. Using soap also adds to the time spent washing and ensures a more effective wash.

A SPATAP can be installed by a 5 year old child in 10 seconds as it requires no power, pipes or engineering skills, thus provides a saving in labour, fetching, carrying and storing water.
