In celebration of World Water Day today, we are rolling out the new WaterBall to our partners in Ethiopia and Kenya!
Every day, a woman in the developing world might walk 5 or more miles to find a water source for her family. Carrying up to 40 pounds of water for several hours a day can cause permanent skeletal damage and prevents her from taking care of her family, getting an education, and improving her quality of life.
For this problem, the WaterBall is one solution. This simple tool for water transportation eases the weight of carrying water, a burden that traditionally falls on women.
To learn more about the WaterBall, read our blog series about the need for the WaterBall, the engineering behind the design, and its creator.
Happy World Water Day!
