About us

The Institute Water for Africa e. V. is a Christian, politically independent, non-profit organization that was established in February 2005.

Our motto is 'Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.' (1 Peter 4,10)

We are working in development aid and conduct projects in the water sector. These include, for example, Water treatment, water supply, irrigation farming, hydrology.
In our projects, we only use appropriate technologies and methods. This ensures that people are able to continue the project themselves.

Through the dissemination of simple methods, the use of appropriate technologies in water supply, water treatment and sanitation, the population should be enabled to care even for enough clean water and good hygiene.
