Hand Hygiene For Health (HHFH) is a project of the Rotary Club of Bribie Island. This project is to educate and empower the next generation to wash their hands, create the handwashing habit and to improve the lives of children living in hygiene poverty. HHFH’s innovative education and hygiene programs create the handwash behaviour change in students, employing the SPATAP portable tap.
Currently there is no system in place to regulate and create the handwashing habit.
Water scarcity is a real problem. The educational component of this programme, not only creates the handwashing habit, but teaches the reality of the scarcity of water, and a lifetime habit of water saving.
2.4 billion people don’t have access to tap or running water, severely limiting their potential to stay hygenic and well.
This is simply not acceptable when we have the technology and means to alleviate the hygiene burden of the world’s poorest people. No child or adult should be denied the right to clean water.
