Technology has fundamentally changed so many aspects of daily life for consumers across the globe for the better. However, one thing that hasn’t changed is the fact that over one billion women and girls still spend hours every day hauling heavy loads of water to their homes. The practice of head loading can cause chronic back, neck, and eye pain, the curvature of the spine, and can lead to death during childbirth.
The Water Wheel is the revolutionary flagship of Nilkamal’s line of 'social impact’ solutions; products designed to meet the needs of marginalized or vulnerable populations. Other products in the category include ultra low-flow toilets, school desks, waste bins, relief bedding, storage solutions and so on. Nilkamal is a household brand across the country and has been India’s Favourite Furniture Brand for over 3 decades. The brand vows to take the Water Wheel to the very doors of the needy, at an affordable price, through its extensive distribution network.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
