Simple and effective hand washing for all.

This ingenious hand-washer helps keep hygiene levels high in rural Africa, where diseases such as COVID-19 can spread easily due to a lack of running water and soap. Often built by a latrine or cowshed, a tip tap is a simple structure made from readily available materials – families can wash their hands by pressing a lever with their foot. Tip taps help to reduce instances of upset tummies and keep families healthy.

  • When you buy a gift from Send a Cow, you’re making a vital donation to help families develop their own solutions so they can grow a better future including tools, livestock and training. Your gift is spent wherever the need is greatest across the countries we work in, making a huge difference to the lives of families living in some of the poorest regions of rural Africa.
