The students at the centre of this creative inventions are Lucky Mwaka and Mansoor Muhammad, who also both work at the university’s research and innovation laboratory.

The main idea behind the handwashing bucket is to ensure quality hygiene in places where they cannot afford luxury cleansing items like hand santisers.

“We thought of a way to draw water without having to open and close the taps. This is for people who use soap and water separately or those who do prior mixing of the disinfectant with water," Umar Yahya, their lecturer said.

He said the way it is made, the hand-washer can be used with any kind of container, depending on what the user can buy.

One of the inventors, Mwaka, said that the washer works when hands come in close proximity to it. He said that it is also very water-saving.

The cost of producing the container is $24 (N8,808) and has been used across several places on the campus with plans to produce more.
