Edutainer® Comments

We recently visited one of our most successful Edutainers®, at Delft in the Cape townships which is a prime example of what happens when the whole process works properly. A very dedicated girl, operating from a tiny site (the container barely squeezes in).... It feeds on being an evident success, parents want their children to go there and pay the fees."

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


There are three models (see images below - click image to enlarge):


  • Type A - The large 8 tap Wash Stations designed for clinics and large schools. They have 2 x 5000 liter tanks and can provide over 60,000 hand washes with soap annually
  • Type B - The 4 tap Wash Station designed for larger preschools and smaller schools. They have a 1 x 5000 liter tank and can provide about 50,000 hand washes with soap annually
  • Type C - The 2 tap Wash Station designed for smaller preschools and limited use areas. They have a 1 x 2500 liter tank and can provide about 28,000 hand washes with soap annually
