    I also would like more information about the distribution of the water wheels. Is there a program in place where churches and civic organizations can purchase them with a guarantee as to where they will go? Our church in the past has purchased water filters for poor villages and had a well dug this summer. This looks like a good project but we would need more info on the safeguards ensuring they go to the areas with the greatest need.

    Jotten, the original Hippo water roller (90L) was designed in 1991 by 2 South Africans and still distributed around the globe in partnership with corporates, NGO's and communities. The WaterWheel is a smaller copy (50L) of the Hippo roller. Visit http://hipporoller.org/rollout to see how we continue to distribute the Hippo water roller. All sponsorship is fully applied to sponsor Hippo rollers to communities. Start here: http://hipporoller.org/project/get-involved

    Really great to see more of these innovations. Wondering how this is different than the hippo roller? I've seen some interesting innovations- one for strapping water to the back- and apparently they're less labor-intensive.
