Fountain Stick

The fountain stick is made of easily available natural materials and is designed as a walking stick as a mobility aid.
It can be carried on the back.
This is because children and women are usually allocated to collect water in Africa. The height of the fountain stick is determined according to the average height of local women, and the length can also be increased, as if a taller person needs to increase height.
The fountain stick can simply be a kettle.
The filter is made of coconut fiber and bran.
The purpose of the filter is to purify the water when fetching it.
