R.I.Roll It / Portable Water tank

R.I.Roll It
R.I.Roll It

In many developing countries of the African continent, women living in remote areas are responsible for fetching water. They have to walk long distances carrying it in containers on top of their heads. Beyond the health problems this practice causes in neck and back, the containers are often too small to transport big quantities of water, and they are jerry cans and buckets that originally contained fuel, oils, pesticides and other dangerous chemicals that shouldn´t be mixed with drinking water. The solution to this problem should be simple and affordable to produce and distribute.
