Water for Thought exhibition in London | First rollers arrive at Rooigrond |
HIPPO WATER ROLLER PROJECT Improving access to clean water
2013 started off in a small but significant way for us when 3x Hippo rollers arrived at the Rooigrond community in South Africa. The rollers have been sponsored by HippoRoller Friends and will be used to provide water to the community’s vegetable gardens.
Visit our HippoRoller Friends page if you would like to get involved on an individual level and make it easier for communities or families to transport water more easily.
WATER FOR THOUGHT – EXHIBITION IN LONDON
The Hippo water roller is part of the upcoming Water for Thought: Life-changing Design exhibition in London, curated for the We Are Water Foundation by leading international designer, Hector Serrano.
International exhibitions continue to provide us with much needed exposure to promote the Hippo water roller.
The exhibition is from 25 January to 23 March at the Roca London Gallery. Find the full details below. I have also attached a video by the Roca London Gallery.

Please share this with anyone you may think will be able to attend the exhibition and/or help to promote it.
World Water Day: The theme of the exhibition is based on the concept of Water and Co-operation, a theme chosen by the UN for World Water Day 22/03/2013to encourage the sustainable management of water resources.

The Hippo water roller will be on show at the international exhibition, Water for Thought in London with some of the Worldâ€™s most innovative product designs for accessing, transporting or purifying water in developing countries.
The Water for Thought exhibition aims to generate awareness of global water problems through a mixture of design, technology and video.
Water for Thought demonstrates how people can use their creativity to create awareness and provide solutions to water-related problems.
Curator Hector Serrano said: â€œThe exhibition aims to be an inspiration and eye opener for visitors, showing not only the facts, but real and simple approaches to the complex problem of peopleâ€™s access to fresh drinking water around the Worldâ€.
