Take A Load Off

Women and children in Kenya are charged with the responsibility of providing water for household use. As a result of large amounts of water being carried on their heads over long distances, they are often affected by lifelong spinal or neck injuries. Furthermore, children often miss school to undertake this responsibility.

The Q Drum rollable water container will be a safer and quicker means of transporting water for both women and children, drastically reducing injury and allowing children to get an education.

Impact

90 poor and marginalized women and their families in Matungu district (over 500 individuals) will benefit.
