For the last three years I have been working with Wello, (formerly Hippo Roller) a non-profit based in the US. Wello’s mission is to meet the needs of the billion people worldwide who do not have reliable access to water. Through the application of innovative, appropriate, and low-cost solutions to water transport, storage, and collection, we seek to improve human health and well-being, reduce poverty, and promote the sustainable use of resources. Our flagship product, the WaterWheel, is a proof that a good idea and a simple design can change the world. A WaterWheel is an innovative water transportation tool designed to alleviate the problems associated with lack of easy access to water. The WaterWheel’s smart design allows water to be placed inside its “wheel,” transforming 175 pounds of water to an effective weight of just 20 pounds (9 kg). This makes it possible to collect 20 gallons (75 liters) of water- five times the amount possible using traditional methods – in less time and much more easily.
Please help me by spreading the word and supporting Wello if you can. The above shots are images from a current campaign we recently shot while working in Rajasthan and Wello’s new website.
Thanks for your help and support!
