SoaPen / Hygiene for kids

Over 1.5 million children under age of 5 die each year as a result of infectious illnesses like diarrhoea. The simple act of hand washing at key times daily can help prevent these illnesses. A simple solution, SoaPen, is a hand soap with which children can draw on their hands. In removing the traces of this drawing under water, they wash their hands for the ideal span of 20- 40 seconds. With SoaPen, we encourage thorough handwashing habits as by removing the traces of the drawing, kids wash their hands in the right manner. SoaPen makes it easier to monitor hand washing and washes when on-the-go.
