An affordable and effective tool for handwashing in the absence of running water.

SaniTap helps you save the lives of under-5s.


Nearly 1,000 children die every day due to preventable water and sanitation-related diarrhoeal diseases


Diarrhoea and pneumonia are the two biggest causes of child mortality globally.  These deaths are largely preventable.

The washing of hands with soap at critical times - after using a toilet, when cooking food or before eating - is highly effective at preventing the spread of those diseases. Unfortunately, for many families, especially those who are forcibly displaced people or refugees, running water simply isn't an option. 

Most hygiene promotion stresses the importance of washing your hands with soap. But when there is no running water at home, it is impossible to put that knowledge into practice. The SaniTap solves this.
— Adriaan Mol - Founder, SaniTap

Studies show handwashing with soap is the single most effective WASH intervention.

For cost-effective prevention against sickness, it's hard to beat soapy handwashing, which cuts down risk of pneumonia, diarrhea, cholera and worse. Watch Myriam Sidibe, a public-health expert, make a smart case for public-private partnerships to promote clean hands - and local, sustainable entrepreneurship.
