Handwash Barrel

Bhutan Toilet Organization has designed
a hand wash station by reusing oil barrels which has the capabilities to address the pressing issues faced by schools due to lack of adequate infrastructure.

The simple solution was created by our staff as part of UNICEF WASH Innovation Challenge 2017, where we received the highest Recommendation from the jury.

Following are the three features of our barrel hand wash station:

  • It’s simple and cheap to build, which schools can afford to replicate.
  • It’s portable and can be placed at the most accessible locations.
  • It has its own tank to fetch and store water to address water scarcity and inconsistency.

This idea was openly shared with schools and we encouraged each school to have a few of them. Reusing Shampoo containers as handwash soap dispensers
