Wello : the centennial post

by Kanika Kakkar

Wello is a social venture with a bold mission: to effectively deliver clean water to a thirsty world. Wello has reinvented the wheel and developed an innovative business model that empowers individuals to use the Water Wheel as an income-generating tool to lift their families out of poverty.

By giving people easier access to potable water, the WaterWheel frees up valuable time, and in the process, removes barriers that prevent children from going to school and empowers women to engage in more productive activities. Research shows that when women have extra time, they choose to spend it on activities that boost family income, education, health, and wellbeing. Women with even a few years of education have smaller, healthier families, and are more likely to send their children to school. Female education is a key means of breaking the cycle of poverty.

The Water Wheel is an innovative leapfrog technology that will replace piped water infrastructure in the same way that cellular phones have replaced landlines. In the process, Wello creates jobs, improves health and increases access to education; it’s the girl effect in action!
