New Wash Stations with soap. Defeat COVID-19 with hand washing facilities in water scarce areas

We are introducing Wash Stations to water scarce areas for clinics and schools. We are also adding Wash Stations to our Early Childhood Development Centres (ECDCs) and retrofitting them to existing ones  to help defeat the COVID-19.

These Wash Stations use the rainwater from the tanks . We have added flow control taps and soap dispensers, so that users can wash their hands with soap.They are delivered with one year’s supply of soap

WASH (Water Sanitation and Health) Ablution Units

Bright kid Foundation has a specialised Infrastructure Development Team (IDT) that installs all the Early Childhood Development Centre infrastructure including safe and sanitary ablution units for both children and adults. Some preschools in informal settlements have access to waterborne sewage. In these cases, the IDT installs flushing toilets and connects them to the sewage lines. Other preschools, mainly in rural areas, have no access to waterborne sewage. In these cases, the IDT installs world class certified waterless ablution units made by Amalooloo. These do not have septic tanks, and require little or no maintenance.
