►Hippo Roller.

It allows people to transport water relatively easily over difficult terrain with ease. It contains 90L of water and can either be pushed or dragged and comes fitted with a handle.
►The Money Maker Hip Pump was developed by KickStart, an organization in Kenya that develops low-tech solutions for everyday problems. It is a low-cost and lightweight, portable pump weighing only 4,5 kg. It can pump water from a depth of 7 meters to a height of 14 meters above the pump. One end of the pump is connected to the water source, either surface or underground water and the other end serves as the pressured outlet. A great deal of work went into designing a super-efficient valve box, but the secret of the design is the simple pivot hinge inside the valve housing. By attaching a “Hand Pump” to a hinged platform, the developers changed the body mechanics of operating the pump. This allows users to use their leg, body weight, and momentum, rather than the small muscles of the upper back and shoulders to operate the pump. This is a much easier way of operating a water pump and increases productivity, especially in high-water demand areas like field irrigation. One pump has enough capacity to water an acre or more.
► Waterlight. The WATERLIGHT produces electrical energy from salt water that in turn produces light energy. The aim of Waterlight is to improve the quality of life of communities without access to this vital resource, offering an energy alternative with the power to meet a great demand while taking care of the environment.
