Simple innovation…

Designed in Africa for tough rural conditions, the durable Hippo Roller makes it extremely easy to collect up to 5x more water than a single bucket, by simply rolling it along the ground.

For the water crisis.

Around 750 million people do not have easy access to clean water. Millions of women and children walk several hours each day to collect water with heavy 20l / 5gal buckets, balanced on their heads.

Immediate impact!

Most benefits enjoyed are experienced immediately: The Hippo Roller improves health and hygiene and makes more water and time available for education, household tasks and food production.
