No – not a PlayStation – but a WaterStation.
There’s a very simple idea been harnessed to allow children in Africa to have clean, fresh drinking water.
The kids play on the merry-go-round, and this is used to pump water !
A PlayPump is a children’s merry-go-round/roundabout attached to a water pump and water storage tank, that provides clean drinking water to children and families in rural Africa.
The idea is brilliantly simple. Children spin on a merry-go-round, water pumps from below the ground, up into a storage tank just a few feet away, creating a safe, plentiful supply of water.
Each installation pumps up to 1,400 liters per hour with less effort than any other manually operated pump.
