One of the most difficult tasks in many developing countries is carrying water. It is usually done by women and girls in containers on their head — often taking several hours per day.

The packH2O is a specially-designed knapsack to carry water in a sanitary way over a person’s back in such a way as to relieve much of the strain on neck and other muscles — in addition to spinal damage and sometimes even pre-mature death. It has a heavy-duty removable plastic liner, a strong but flexible woven plastic covering, and folds very efficiently.

The cost is $25.00 per unit, but quantity discounts are available. Over 210,000 packs have been distributed in over 35 countries, impacting the lives of more than 1,050,000 people as of December 2018. This is also an opportunity for micro-businesses.
