 Drinking Water for Colombia

Drinking Water for Colombia

In the two municipalities of Bocas del Carare and Isla Renacer, two water treatment plants will be installed and the existing infrastructure renovated and expanded. Decentralized solutions are of immense importance in the rural areas of Colombia for the drinking water supply of local residents.

 
 
 Bees at Lake Tota

Bees at Lake Tota

In the catchment area, native plants are reforested, which on the one hand increase biological diversity and on the other hand serve as food sources for bees. The sustainable use of beehives offers trained farmers an alternative source of income.

Ecosystem Services of Karst Protected Areas

To find the right balance between conservation, protection and improvement of ecosystems as well as their sustainable use, this is the most important and major challenge in the Danube Region. The target aim of the project is to contribute to the protection and sustainable development of karst bio-regions in the Danube basin based on their valued ecosystem services.

 

 

Projects in Middle East

 
 
 Wastewater Treatment Plant with Solar Power, Jordan Valley

Wastewater Treatment Plant with Solar Power, Jordan Valley

In the Jordan Valley, water, which is vital for human and nature, is scarce. Sufficiently treated wastewater, e.g. for the irrigation of agricultural land, can help to sustainably improve the situation of Jordanians.

 

Projects in Africa

 
 
 Drinking Cups for Drinking Water

Drinking Cups for Drinking Water

By waiving the cup deposit, football fans can actively support the project at every home match of Hannover 96. The donations will be used to repair groundwater pumps in Côte d'Ivoire and to build drinking water facilities in Kenya, Senegal and South Africa.

 
 
 Drinking Water Project at Lake Tanganyika, Burundi

Drinking Water Project in Gitaza, Burundi

On the shore of Lake Tanganyika, a network of pipes is being extended to ensure that sufficient drinking water is available to local residents.

 
 
 Drinking Water Project in the Community of Gumbi, South Africa

Drinking Water Project in the Community of Gumbi, South Africa

The self-sufficient supply of groundwater is ensured by drilling and installing pumps in three villages in the community, north of the Somkhanda Game Reserve. On the one hand, this reduces the previous effort required to fetch water, and on the other hand, the reserve's water sources are significantly relieved.

 
 
 Drinking Water for Africa

Drinking Water for Africa

More than 800 million people still live without access to clean drinking water – most of them in African countries. Many people – most of them children – suffer of poor water quality and die as a result of diarrhea and cholera. The project focuses on this and helps to provide them with clean drinking water.
