Share This Post


On March 22nd, as the world celebrated World Water Day, the stark reality of 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water hung heavy in the air. Yet, amidst this daunting statistic, there are beacons of hope, organizations like RollaHippo, dedicated to making a difference, one drop at a time.

Every year, World Water Day serves as a poignant reminder of the global water crisis. It’s a day when initiatives, both big and small, are highlighted for their efforts in raising awareness and taking action. RollaHippo is one such initiative that stands out with its unwavering commitment to providing access to water, particularly in regions where it’s most desperately needed.

The Hippo Roller, a simple yet ingenious device, has been the cornerstone of RollaHippo’s mission. Its power to transform lives is evident in every community it reaches. This February, the team at RollaHippo doubled down on their efforts, basking in the warm embrace of the sun as they built garden beds and prepared a large garden for training purposes.

Located in Driefontein, just outside Ladysmith, RollaHippo’s training programs have become a beacon of hope for many. With 40 spaces available per month for a 24-month program, individuals flock to participate, eager to learn about starting gardens, water conservation techniques, pesticides, and soil management.

In February alone, 80 enthusiastic individuals took part in RollaHippo’s training programs. They came from diverse backgrounds, united by a common goal: to make a difference in their communities. Now, as March unfolds, RollaHippo has set its sights even higher, aiming to reach 120 participants by month’s end.

The impact of RollaHippo’s efforts extends far beyond the confines of training sessions and garden beds. It’s about empowering communities, instilling knowledge, and fostering a sense of responsibility towards water conservation. Through education and action, RollaHippo is not just quenching thirst; it’s nurturing hope and building a brighter future for generations to come.
