Improving water access, food security & income generation
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.
It was specifically designed for use in tough rural conditions, with a long lifespan of 5 – 7 years, often much longer. Using the Hippo roller results in many social benefits, most of which are immediate.
Utility Cap. The newly designed Utility Cap allows users to conveniently and hygienically draw water and ensures hygienic storage of clean water. Clean potable water is achieved by fitting a filter onto the Utility Cap.
The irrigation cap-in-cap enables drip irrigation, assisting small-scale farmers to irrigate their crops more efficiently.
Hippo Spaza. The word “Spaza” typically refers to a small shop vendor in Africa. Attaching a specially designed steel frame to the Hippo roller converts it into a simple trolley for transporting products, and then into a stand for displaying the products to be sold.
