What We Do

We provide appropriate technology

The Hippo Roller is an immediate and appropriate response to the issues surrounding water access and food security with broad social impact. It is widely accepted in many countries by water-stressed communities.

We promote social investment

We provide social investment and fundraising opportunities for NGOs, government, corporations, and individuals to purchase Hippo Rollers for those who need them most, but typically cannot afford them.

We improve access to water

Our innovation makes more water and time available for education, household tasks and food production, enabling people to transport up to 5 x more water to their homes and food gardens.

Sponsorship

Its international reputation has enabled the business to attract corporate sponsorship, as the Hippo Roller can be branded with company logos and the drum can be colour matched to the organisations brand.

Distribution

Bulk shipping to pre-identified local distributors and partnerships with local NGOs enhances the Hippo Rollers reach into rural communities and households most in need.

Manufacturing

The business outsources its primary manufacturing in South Africa and has a local manufacturing strategy for other countries to reduce high shipping costs and achieve a lower “landed cost” in these countries.

Retail Sector

We recognise that many households are unable to purchase Hippo Rollers as the upfront expense is often beyond their means. We invite retailers to join us and offer micro-finance facilities for their customers.
