This tippy tap, located in the school courtyard, has a bar of soap tied to a string.

Tippy taps — simple hand washing stations — have helped improve the health of many people in Terre Blanche and the surrounding communities.

A tippy tap is a simple device consisting of a plastic jug filled with water and a small hole in the lid hung on tree branch or in a home. It’s used to wash hands in places where there is no running water.

The tippy tap was introduced to the Terre Blanche area as part of the community health program. It’s had great success with it being used 100 percent of the time in homes that have them. This is an amazing accomplishment.


This is another hand washing station that doesn’t require running water.
