  • 2013 Project Update: Hippo Water Roller


    In response to Hippo Water Roller,
    in the thread


    We have reached 45,000 rollers at the end of 2013 directly benefiting more than 300,000 people (7 per household).

    Visit our new website for more information.

    Many thanks to Design21 for it's ongoing promotion of the Hippo water roller.

    IMAGE: The Hippo Water Roller Project launched its new pink Hippo roller at the Pretoria Botanical Gardens on August 9, 2013. We had a fun day of races using traditional buckets to fill pink rollers in support of Women's day 2013.
