We are a registered, non-profit organisation that has set itself the goal of sustainably improving living conditions in Africa. We are politically independent. This is also our principle in the project areas.

IWFA is a member of the Württemberg Evangelical Working Group for World Mission in Stuttgart, Germany.

We carry out water-related projects. These include water supply, wastewater, irrigation and soil desalination. We also offer seminars on water treatment and hygiene, for example.
