We support villages in Rwanda
We address the issues of energy, agriculture&food, water, health, education and income in their interplay.
We are investigating the chances of new decentralised technologies in a pilot village. This is done with scientific support within the framework of field tests.
„I am driven by the question: what external impetus has to be given, what existing impulse has to be reinforced, in order to initiate a development away from poverty in the village environment? A development that is self-sustaining and continues without outside help. Not just in one village, but in a large number of villages. We will find out through practical action with science based support!“
