JUST PUSHING / Water tools


Through research, it is found that adults in Africa are currently working outside the home. Children between the ages of 10 and 16 are responsible for household chores. They need to walk 10 kilometres to fetch water, and they also have to take care of their siblings. This design is to solve the problem of long-distance transportation of water for children aged 10-16 years in Africa. By cleverly combining wheels and buckets, older children can easily transport water and take care of younger siblings. The materials used are very simple, using local waste rubber and steel pipes. The goal can be achieved through simple assembly.
