Water Supply

Water supply includes water extraction, water pumping, water storage and pipeline construction.

At the beginning of the water supply is the water extraction. The water can come from groundwater, from surface waters such as rivers and lakes or from springs. Another method is the collection of rainwater.

During an on-site inspection, we will decide with you what the best solution is.

Water Treatment

The water pumped, be it groundwater or surface water, usually has to be treated in some way so that it can be used as drinking water. The so-called raw water often contains undesirable substances such as suspended solids, bacteria, viruses, fertilizer residues or heavy metals.

Depending on the substances that have to be removed, the water treatment process also changes.

Our seminars are mainly aimed at people who are responsible for water projects on site.

Contents are basics of water supply, WASH and others.

Good knowledge of mathematics, physics and chemistry is an absolute prerequisite.

For seminars outside Africa please contact directly Eng. Jürgen Baisch.

Irrigation makes sense wherever agriculture is not profitable or not possible due to insufficient water. This is often the case in semi-arid and arid areas.

Irrigation offers the chance to increase crop yields and thus become less dependent on food aid. With sufficient irrigation, soil salination can also be avoided. Soil that has already been salinated can become salt-free again.

We Speak Running Water

Hydraulic Engineering is Our Area of Expertise


Water management in Africa is a responsible task. It requires competence and expertise.
Our local partner companies also have qualified personnel such as hydrologists, geologists and hydraulic engineers.


Through our many years of work in various African countries we have a wealth of experience.


Each project is personally supervised by us. It is in good hands from the first contact to the completion.

On Site

We assess a new potential project on site. Only in this way can we find the best possible individual solution. We are also on site during the construction phase and the completion of the project.


We rely on appropriate technologies and methods. This ensures that the project can continue to function for years to come.


Special work, such as drilling, is outsourced to competent, trustworthy partners on site.


We are recognised as a non-profit organisation in Germany. Donations are therefore tax deductible.


We are politically independent. This is also our principle in the project areas.
