Global Handwashing Day

With handwashing taking on more importance than ever before, Planet Water Foundation and our donor partners will be transforming the lives of rural communities through our month of action in conjunction with Global Handwashing Day. In addition, our long-standing partner Sesame Workshop India will be working alongside us to deliver education on the importance of handwashing with soap.

Transform Lives

Handwashing Facilities

Each AquaTower system includes a handwashing station, with six handwashing points and integrated liquid soap dispeners. In addition, one year's supply of hand soap is provided with each project.

School-based and Community-based Hygiene Education

Planet Water’s Water-Health & Hygiene education program creates a change in behavior, beliefs, and knowledge on life-saving hygiene practices. With a focus on handwashing, the program is reinforced with messaging on the AquaTower itself.
