Sometimes the Simplest Ideas are the Best Solutions!! (Video) Amazing...
The Hippo Water Roller was created in 1991 by two South Africans, Mr. Pettie Petzer and Johan Jonker. They both grew up on farms and had seen the effect of the water crisis on rural communities where access to water is a daily struggle for millions of people.
The Hippo Water Roller Project was established in 1994 and first piloted in South Africa. The broad social impact of the project has since been felt in more than 20 other countries.
There are millions of women and children who struggle daily to access water. It is estimated that globally, women and children spend 140 million hours collecting fresh water every day. This is typically done with heavy 20 litre buckets balanced on their head.
The 90 litre Hippo Roller enables women, children and the elderly to collect five times more water than a single bucket. Users simply roll the Hippo Roller along the ground. Its solutions improve water access, food security and income generation.
