PlayPumps Improve Water Supply in Africa

Wee Are the World: PlayPumps Supply Clean Water

Drinkable water from the faucet and a shower or bath are things we Americans take for granted. For more than one billion people worldwide, clean drinking water is a luxury that is hard to come by.

By combining a merry-go-round and a water pump, PlayPumps International is bringing free, healthy water and fun activities to rural and peri-urban communities. Installed near school yards, PlayPumps' water pumps are powered by the children who play on them.

More than 1,200 systems have already been donated to communities in South Africa, Lesotho, Mozambique, Swaziland, and Zambia improving the drinking water for millions of people. With attention from Steve Case, Jay-Z and Kirstie Alley, the group hopes to install 4,000 PlayPumps by next year, ultimately benefitting 10 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa.
