Sustainable Development - Projects

Gerhard Nagl's picture

The DIY Solar Pump provides the populations of remote, rural regions with access to water, which is essential for the sustainable development of a country. 

Water is vital. It is not only necessary to maintain and develop the economy, but to enable existence in general. Water guarantees a healthier future!

Sustainable Development with Water

People deliver water with a donkey for a sustainable development.

Sustainable Development to build the economy

With sufficient access to water it's possible to set up irrigation plants to cultivate fields. The cultivation of grain leads to a healthy and ample food supply, which promotes autonomy (self-supply) and also boosts the economy by means of commerce.

Sustainable Development to build hospitals and provide health care for children.

Sustainable Development to build hospitals and provide health care

A sufficient drinking water supply naturally goes together with maintaining good health. Many diseases caused by consuming contaminated water can be stopped. Deficient hygiene can also be fought.

Furthermore, it becomes possible to establish a health care system, because only where there is enough water, can infrastructure be created.

Sustainable Development to advance education in schools.

Sustainable Development to advance education

Education is an essential step towards a better future. Many children are, however, prevented from attending school. On the one hand, their families often lack the necessary financial means to send them to schools, and on the other hand particularly girls are expected to manage the family’s water supply during school time.

Sustainable Development to achieve further development

Water is the resource which is required to lead people into a better future. When we pass on our know-how, the people can live on agriculture by means of livestock breeding, farming and pasturing whereby they learn to operate economically.

Sustainable Development to maintain culture in rural areas.

Sustainable Development to maintain culture

Access to water is needed to prevent an exodus of the rural population and therefore to guarantee the survival of cultures.

Aid to self-help - Water, the lifesaver

Real sustainable development in developing countries is not provided by sending grain and medicine. Real assistance is provided, when the people are shown how they can help themselves on a permanental basis. The most precious resource which they can be given is “water ”.

Water - Work - Life

Solar Pump Systems makes a huge contribution towards "aid to self-help". What is important is that those people in need are given the ability to help themselves and build a better quality of life. 

This includes projects for the development of sanitation, building of schools, hospitals and development of agriculture. And that the prerequisite for this is "water”.

Become Involved

Many studies prove that "aid to self-help" is actually the most sustainable form of development aid, because it not only creates work locally, but improves the living conditions of the population. The people are thereby motivated to become involved and to work to continually improve their circumstances. 

Not only does the implementation of such projects,require financial resources but, more importantly, the transfer of know-how to the locals. As always, water provides the basis for any type of development and  the DIY Solar Pump is required in order to extract it from the substrate. 

Together for a sustainable development in Africa, India, South America and South-East Asia.

World-wide use

Whether in Africa, Latin America or Asia –  Sustainable Development with water is needed everywhere and the Solar Pump Systems can be used everywhere. This would ensure an improvement in the water supply, the food situation and the development of infrastructure.

The DIY Solar Pump as well as Solar Pump Systems allow people to implement these projects, by enabling a secure, continuous water supply to develop the basis for all further steps. It is a first step in the right direction, on the path to alleviating hunger and poverty throughout the world.
