PHS Waterlogic initiative provides free water to African school kids

Installation has been completed on the first PHS Waterlogic sponsored PlayPump®, and is now providing free clean water to a school in southern Africa.

The PlayPump® water system is an ingenious device which uses a specially crafted children’s roundabout to pump water from deep underground. As children play on the roundabout, the circular action draws water up from the ground to be used for drinking, washing and cleaning.

In May 2010, PHS Waterlogic announced a partnership with the One Foundation, the charity behind the One range of products, and the launch of the One Watercooler. When customers take a Totalcare® service package on a One Watercooler, PHS Waterlogic makes a donation to the charity with the aim of financing the installation of PlayPump® water systems for water impoverished communities in Africa.

The newly installed PlayPump® has been installed at Khojane Primary School on the western border of Lesotho. The school, which has 250 pupils, also shares the water with a further 1800 adults and children in the community. The PlayPump® will produce so much clean water that the school and community will now be able to start a vegetable garden and clean the school bus.
