Water is the primary element of life .
However children, in some rural areas in developing countries, can not be
supplied sufficient water mainly because of poor conditions of taps.
In the market, plastic tap is less than 2$ and steel tap is around 6$
in Uganda. But the taps are not strong enough to all usage.
Moreover the taps have values to them in their communities and markets.
For this reason many taps in the school are stolen.
Giving one product is not a good solution, let them make the cheap
and easy to use taps themselves for the sustainable use in the school
and at home. Desgin for children but it can cover the others.
