Women still carry most of the world’s water.

Women in rural regions of India walk an average of 1-2 miles a day, carrying water on their heads. The weight over time leads to chronic neck and back pain, as well as musculoskeletal disorders leading to complications during childbirth. Women may be pregnant or carry a baby on their back in addition to their load.

Let's ease the burden on our mothers, sisters and daughters.

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.

The physical and health burdens of water collection trap families in a vicious cycle of poverty – it is also a time-consuming task.

Water is heavy. A traditional container equals a standard airline checked bag.



“I want to make a difference for at least 500 families. My team will personally be delivering the wheels to families in need. Who is with me?”
