Bringing clean drinking water to rural communities through PlayPumps


We have been supporting the installation and maintenance of almost 40 PlayPumps in rural areas since 2002, supplying clean drinking water to thousands of people across South Africa.

We have partnered with Roundabout Water Solutions, which installs and maintains the pumps, to bring healthy water supply to rural communities that don’t have access to a reliable source of drinking water.

A PlayPump is a specifically designed “merry-go-round” that pumps water into a reservoir as the children play on them, providing clean drinking water in impoverished, rural communities and providing children with a constructive and rewarding way to use their energy.

Community members no longer have to walk long distances to fetch water, and there are less incidences of water-borne diseases which keep learners away from school, affecting their education.

PlayPumps provide safe drinking water in rural communities around South Africa.
