PlayPumps

The PlayPump is an ingenious solution for rural African communities to get easy access to clean drinking water. Installed near schools, the PlayPump doubles as a water pump and a merry-go-round for children. This is how the PlayPump works. When children play and spin the PlayPump, clean water is pumped from underground into a tank standing seven meters above the ground. To collect water, just turn on the tap. It's that easy and fun.
