Tippy Taps in Paris!

One of our plans while in Madagascar is to build two Tippy Taps outside the Cathedral latrines for hand-washing purposes.

Paul and Simon are going to work on this project with some of the Malagasy people.  They will also train the local people in how and why to use them, and encourage everyone to wash their hands to reduce illnesses due to the spreading of germs on unwashed hands.

Yesterday, I sent instructions to Paul so that he could to teach the Malagasy to make Tippy Taps.  With great enthusiasm they have already built one in their garden. Here's Maggie trying it out.  I think the neighbors in Paris may find it puzzling to see them washing their hands in the garden!!
