Kids play. Water Pumps!
PlayPumps International raises money to provide PlayPump™ water systems to rural children and communities in Africa. When the merry-go-round spins, it pumps uncontaminated drinking water from deep below the ground into a secure and clean 2,500-liter water tank. A simple tap provides easy access for women and children drawing water.
PlayPumps International will install 4,000 pumps to help bring the benefits of clean drinking water to 10 million people in 10 countries by 2010, enabling improvements in health, education, gender equality and economic development. They have 900 pumps in the ground so far. Rap star Jay-Z and tennis star Nicole Vaidisova are among their supporters.
