Give more water to millions of people.

This year we celebrate 25 years of the Hippo Water Roller! We have so far distributed almost 50,000 Hippo Rollers in 20 countries in Africa. The daily lives of hundreds of thousands of women and children have been radically changed with this simple technology.

Designed in Africa for Africa, the 90 litre Hippo Water Roller enables women, children and the elderly to collect 5 times more water than a single bucket by simply rolling it along the ground. 

GLOBAL WATER CRISIS

750 million people in Africa and Asia are without adequate access to water.

Every day, millions of women and children are forced to rely on traditional methods of water collection that consume excessive amounts of energy and time.

  • Many people carry water in heavy 20 Litre buckets balanced on their head
  • Water collection points are often located far from their homes: 2 – 10 km
  • This time consuming task requiring multiple trips per day: 3 – 9 hours
  • Carrying water is strenuous causing long-term neck and spinal injuries

SIMPLE SOLUTION

The Hippo Water Roller is an appropriate technology widely accepted in many countries by communities where water infrastructure is either unreliable or totally non-existent. 

Let's give more water to millions of women and children in Africa, Asia and other parts of the world.
