Jude Osei: UN calls inventor of solar-powered hand-washing machine

Jude Osei, a young Ghanaian inventor who captured the attention of President Akufo-Addo with his solar-powered hand-washing machine has earned the recognition of the United Nations (UN).


Jude Osei, a native of Kumasi, converted a metallic drum that was simply fitted with a sink, sensors and cables that connect to the solar panel on top into a hand-washing machine.

Once a user places their hand under the tap, the sensor sends a signal and soap is released on the person’s hand.

The system is programmed to allow 25 seconds for the person to wash the hands well before rinsing begins — a standard way for hand washing.

Jude Osei disclosed in a clip that the amazing invention allows water to flow automatically for washing hands in an effort to help curb the spread of the pandemic coronavirus in the country.
