In rural regions of India, women walk 1-2 miles a day, carrying water on their heads. Overtime, the physical and health burdens of water collection trap families in a vicious cycle of poverty.

And we’re on a mission to ease this burden.

THE ROLLING SOLUTION

THE WATER WHEEL

The Water Wheel, designed by Wello, is a large, round water drum that is fitted with handles so it can be rolled along the ground with ease.

These round containers enable water collectors to roll liquid from wells rather than carry it on their heads. It can hold up to five times more water than a single bucket.

Children should be flying kites, not carrying heavy water for miles every day in 40°C heat.

Women and girls have better things to do with their time, such as work and education. The Water Wheel can carry five times more water than a pail, meaning children no longer need to be involved in carrying water.

More than 120 people from the world of dentistry took part in a sponsored walk on Sunday September 15th 2019 to raise money for Wells on Wheels – and to honour dentist Anoop Maini, who tragically passed away in July 2019.

Participants walked two miles around the boating lake in Regent’s Park in London, each carrying heavy bottles of water, in a bid to experience what carrying water in rural Indian villages might feel like.
