Hygiene has always been a central part of our work. Clean hands mean healthy communities, which is why Send a Cow works to improve access to clean water and sanitation in projects in rural Africa. Where families don’t have clean water close to home, "tip taps" can be made from readily available materials. Tip taps enable families to safely wash their hands, by pressing a lever with their feet.

How does it work?

Join Send a Cow’s first virtual relay event! Help us collectively travel 32,460 miles in 89 days. We’re starting at one of our projects in the highlands of Ethiopia, heading across Africa to another of our projects in Zambia, then over to Bath where Send a Cow is based in the UK, and back to Ethiopia. We will then travel back from Zambia, across Africa to reach our finish line in Ethiopia.

Register to take part for just £13, which could help fund the tip tap handwasher.

Pledge to walk, run, or cycle a distance of your choice between 1st Jan and 31st March 2021.  

Raise £60 in sponsorship which could provide the life-saving hygiene training for one family, as part of Send a Cow's continuing response to coronavirus in rural Africa. 

Once you’re done, pass on the virtual baton by challenging a friend or family to take part!

The difference your £60 sponsorship could make to families like Sylvia's...

£60 can provide a family with life-saving hygiene training and skills. Families learn how to build a tip tap to help wash their hands safely. They also learn how to harvest rainwater to use during the dry months, and to build a simple clean latrine.

What are the different ways I can get involved?

This could be as simple as logging the miles you do walking your dog or going out for a run around your local green space.

If you're unable to leave your home (for example, if you are self-isolating as a result of coronavirus), why not try to reach 10,000 steps in your garden or inside your home. Remember, when planning your run/walk/cycle, it is vital to follow all government advice on coronavirus
