We all want piped water in our homes, but the reality is, South Africa is a long way off to realising this for every household in the near future.

Millions of South Africans face "Day Zero" throughout their lives!

The Hippo Water Roller is a really simple idea that has a far-reaching impact on the daily lives of those without infrastructure.

  • Hippo Rollers are 90L drums designed to be used in tough rural terrain, with an average lifespan of 5-7 years, and more.
  • Hippo Rollers change lives by giving women and children more time to seek employment, attend school, and grow food gardens.
  • More water in the home also has a positive impact health and hygiene.
  • A Hippo Roller is so easy to use, as 90L of water is rolled along the ground, taking the strain off the spine and neck.
  • It is easily used by children, the elderly and the disabled, empowering them to continue taking care of their own needs.

The Hippo Roller has been changing lives for 25 years, and has a proven track record in the field.

Support our effort to change lives with this simple appropriate technology, by donating to the cause, and sharing to create awareness.
