    Project H is supporting the amazing Hippo Roller water transport barrel device, delivering 50 of them to a community in South Africa this April. You can sponsor your own for $100! Donate online at www.projecthdesign.com

    What’s a Hippo Roller and how is Project H involved? The Hippo Roller is a simple rolling barrel device that allows the millions whose livelihoods depend on the daily fetching of water to more easily access and transport their daily water supply, and reduce the risk of long-term bodily injuries. The roller holds 3-4 days worth of water for a family of 7, about 5 times the amount of water that can be moved using traditional methods, which frees up time for more productive economic and educational activities. It’s an amazing product and an amazing story of good design enabling communities.

    In April of this year, Project H will be traveling to South Africa to visit the Hippo Roller’s manufacturer and headquarters, and will personally hand over fifty rollers to a community in Northeastern South Africa in need of enabling water systems. The rollers are a gesture of support and a catalyst for more collaboration on larger water systems projects within Kgautswane. $100 sponsors the production and delivery of one roller in your name. Thank you in advance for supporting this amazing product and the amazing people whose lives you’re improving.
