Merry-go-round pumps water to African town

You have got to see this:

The pump for the community well is a merry-go-round. As children spin the metal wheel, they pump water to supply individual needs and to fill the nearby storage tank. We have driven past this well many times, and we always see a happy crowd of children playing as they pump the well. Mothers watch in the background while water flows into their buckets.

Good old African ingenuity in Zambia.
