Peace Corps Guatemala uses what we call Porta Pilas as hand washing stations. Here I am demonstrating 3 different kinds, the tippy tap model along with two other models that use hanging bottles. In many homes they have a water source far from the house, or far from the kitchen or latrine. They can be used outside of the latrine or bathroom, outside the kitchen, anywhere where washing hands is recommended.
