Playing and pumping water happen at the same time with the PlayPump. It's a simple idea. The PlayPump looks like a "merry-go-round" but it's really a water pump. When kids ride on it, the PlayPump pumps water into a storage tank that's big enough to serve 2,500 people water. So far, 1,000 of there pumps have been installed in Africa. Usually a PlayPump is installed near a school, where there is a ready supply of children! (Adults can spin it too!)
Each system costs $14,000 to install and get running. Africa needs thousands more of these pumps, so PlayPump is looking for people to help raise money. Become a Water Hero! Sponsor a PlayPump Water System.
