THE AIM

nelson-mandela-with-hipporoller

To support the 67 Minutes of Community Upliftment Drive for MANDELA DAY 2014.

  • Why 67.67? The late Mr Nelson Mandela spent more than 67 years serving his community, his country and the world. The number is symbolic of how people can start to do the same – to take responsibility for changing the world into a better place, one small step at a time, just as the late Mr Mandela did for more than 67 years.

THE CHALLENGE

Our goal is to distribute 4, 489 Hippo Rollers (67 x 67) = 4,489 Families Transformed!
The cost of providing one Hippo Roller per family is: R1,467.67 – including VAT (+/- $150).*

  • CORPORATE:
    67.67 Hippo Water Roller Challenge in support of Mandela DayWe appeal to corporate companies to use their CSI (corporate social responsibility) and Marketing budgets to purchase Hippo Rollers for one or more communities (i.e. 67 x rollers per community).
  • OTHER:
    We also appeal to NGOs, staff volunteer groups, other support groups and individuals to boost this campaign by making a commitment online and to challenge your peers to do the same.

* This includes the costs to identify individual communities & beneficiaries; transportation; distribution; training and each handover ceremony.

JOIN IN!

There are TWO WAYS TO PARTICIPATE in the 67.67 Hippo Water Roller Challenge for 2014:

WHO BENEFITS?

  • We select 67 communities around South Africa (sponsors may also nominate) who are situated in water-stressed areas, or who lack adequate or reliable water infrastructure.
  • We coordinate and distribute the Hippo rollers on your behalf to the 67 communities (sponsors are welcome to attend) and we provide photos and stories of each handover.
  • Families who own a Hippo Water Roller are able to enjoy the benefits immediately through improved access to water which is a basic human right.
  • Predominantly women, children and the elderly benefit most while many men are starting to assist using the Hippo Roller.
  • Community leaders often prioritise child-headed homes and the elderly looking after orphaned children.
