Luke and Linda
After discovering the hippo roller in early 2014, Luke and Linda were blown away by it’s simple, yet effective design, and how it could drastically change the lives of women all over the world, who collectively, spend 200M hours a day collecting water.
In the words of Luke Vorstermans, Founder of Roll a Hippo Foundation: “A hippo can save a woman upwards of 20 hours of work per week, so imagine what a group of women could collectively do with that time. Or a nation of women? This simple design can change the world.”
They decided, from that point forward, tat it was their mission to get the hippo roller in the hands of as many women as possible.
It started with a humble crowdfunding campaign to raise funding for 1,000 hippo rollers, and has grown into a movement that has impacted tens of thousands in South Africa.
The Roll A Hippo has now moved on to its next goal, to deliver 10,000 hippo rollers to women in need, and we need your help!
