In September, the Nigerian government launched a reorientation campaign donning the slogan: ‘Change Begins With Me.’ I was in India at the time and shared my excitement with some friends who like me believe that this approach is what the world needs. I expressed my great hopes that our Nigerian Initiatives of Change team would make a significant contribution to this campaign, but after returning home I found that this was not to be, at least not yet.

Victor Nyanhete, IofC/MRA Zimbabwe youth programme coordinator completed an internship at Asia Plateau, IofC India’s centre in 2015. Just down the hill from the conference buildings in Panchgani is Grampari, the rural and ecological centre. As part of his training at Grampari, Victor was introduced to the Tippy Tap. Grampari promote this simple device, along with a cheerful hand-washing song, in schools around the area, as part of their health and hygiene programme. Victor knew this was an idea that was needed in his home country, Zimbabwe.
