Tuesday, May 5, is World Hand Hygiene Day! To celebrate, watch this quick video from 10-year-old instructor, Karen in Cieneguilla, Mexico, and learn to wash your hands using a tippy tap!

Did you know that handwashing with soap and safe water could reduce deaths related to diarrheal disease by up to 50 percent?

It’s not only important for us to provide safe-water access in communities—we also want to make sure it stays safe! We promote simple solutions like tippy taps in our range of hygiene lessons to ultimately save more lives.

Our hygiene promoters also ensure families learn other life-saving lessons like safe water transportation and storage, ways to block disease transmission, how to treat dehydration, and proper disposal of waste.

Thanks for helping us make every day one that celebrates good hygiene! Share this video on your social networks to help spread the word.
