Every day, millions of women and children in developing countries are forced to carry heavy loads of water for long distances to their homes, typically in heavy 20L (kg) containers balanced on their head.

By raising funds to purchase Hippo Water Rollers, The Roll-A-Hippo Foundation aims to alleviate the daily struggle endured by women and children by helping them improve their ability to transport water, more easily and in less time from water points that are often located far from their homes.

On average, a woman spends six hours a day collecting and transporting water to supply her family’s daily needs. The time spent on this basic necessity keeps many children out of school and prevents women from engaging in more empowering activities and income-generating work.

You nourish your soul by fulfilling your destiny, by developing the potential that the soul represents. When you fulfill your soul’s destiny, you will feel “right.” Conversely, when you ignore your soul’s destiny, when you get caught up in your own self-interests and forget to care for others, you will not feel “right.” Instead, you will feel empty and unfulfilled. During these times, you are neglecting your soul–you are depriving it of nourishment. When I talk to people who feel this emptiness and lack of fulfillment, I recommend they find a source of balance in their lives. I suggest they find a way to “give back” to the world in order to feel a sense of completeness.
