A better way to transport water in developing countries


Wello has researched ways to improve the efficiency of water transport and storage in developing countries to help people who have to walk long distances while carrying buckets of water. Based on their research they developed a prototype for a pushable high-quality plastic container called the WaterWheel. It uses the same principle as the Hippo roller which is currently in use throughout Africa. www.wellowater.org

  1. Drawing water from a community well – or even more distant sometimes – is a constant burden, especially for women in undeveloped communities. It takes them from more productive activities. This invention, probably cheap to produce, seems infinitely more productive, easier to use and better for health, than carrying water pails, generally used jerry cans in either hand.
