What's it all about?
The world has united as a global community to fight the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Across the planet the message is clear - washing your hands kills this virus!
But 2.3 billion people across the globe don’t have access to basic sanitation.
Play Tippy Tap Tag and help highlight the challenges faced by the world's most vulnerable communities. While 'safe-at-home' on your own or with kids, get creative building your own handwashing system, or tippy tap, and share the fun online.
Making a tippy tap is a fun reminder for children to wash their hands, while teaching how vulnerable communities live without running water. For the rest of us, it’s a fun way to challenge our DIY skills!
Show solidarity with our global family fighting this battle together. Play #GOALTippyTapTag!
A tippy tap is a simple, hygienic, homemade handwashing system used where there is no access to clean running water.
Note: Tippy Tap Tag is just for fun and raising awareness, not a replacement for washing your hands with soap under a tap. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has also developed its own Tippy Tap video guide.
