Hippo Roller makes it extremely easy to collect water in tough rural conditions - up to 5x more water than a single bucket, by simply rolling it along the ground.
The Hippo Roller is very user friendly for women, children and physically weak as it makes the transportation of water much less strenuous than traditional methods.
According to the United Nations, 2.1 billion people live without access to safe water in their homes. The statistics on access to water does not reflect the reality on the ground, where many people struggle to live a dignified life.
Millions of women and children walk up to 6 hours a day to collect water with heavy 20l / 5gal buckets, balanced on their heads.
While the Hippo Roller is not a permanent water solution, it does offer an immediate and appropriate response to the issues surrounding water access and food security.
The benefits enjoyed by the users are experienced immediately unlike many projects that require extensive time and money before results are seen. Improved health and hygiene due to improved access to water results in higher levels of energy for increased productivity, which improves morale and personal dignity.
