I took Happy Hands to two rural Tanzanian villages to test it alongside 5 other hand wash systems we designed. Purpose was to get user feedback to inform development of an improved hand washing system for low-resource settings. Happy Hands works great and was one of the two most preferred devices due to the hands-free activation. It's also good because it conserves water, and in rural Tanzania water scarcity is a huge problem. My only concern is with the lifespan of the foot pump. Only time will tell, but it seemed the pump took the most abuse. Also, the price is too high for low-income rural Tanzanians. Other than that the product works well and does the job.
