Broad-Based Social Impact
Some of the Social Impact Benefits experienced:
Reduces the suffering caused by carrying heavy loads of water.
Saves many hours a day allowing more time for other important tasks. It gives women and children more time for education and more time for economic activities.
Improves hygiene and health. Rolling rather than carrying heavy buckets of water reduces the strain on the skeletal frame reducing the possibilities of physical injury.
Positive cultural changes as men who generally consider collecting water a menial task now help collect water with this technology.
Many NGO’s are more effective in achieving their particular goals and objectives.
