Women and children spend 140M hours collecting fresh water daily in developing countries.
After the hideous collection, the women balance heavy containers on their head and carry them for miles.
WaterWheel has a capacity to carry up to 45 litres of water.
45 litres capacity is 2-5x more efficient than head loading.
They are used for irrigation as well.
Wello and HDFC Bank’s CSR teamed up to deliver 2000+ WaterWheels in February 2016.
A similar project Hippo Roller is a great success in Africa.
Innovative projects like these can help reduce the rural people’s burden.
