Installing water pumps in Chad

Providing water pumps in Tchad's remote areas


Chad, 2017. Refugees from the Central African Republic fetching water at a newly installed water pump.

Earlier this year I travelled through Chad with a missionary from the Lutheran Brotherhood. Part of their activities in Chad is to facilitate installation of water pumps in remote areas. Working closely with the community, they support and partially finance the installation of water pumps. In areas where the next water hole is a long walk away and will often provide unhealthy water, this makes a big difference to the communities. The water from the pumps has drinking water quality. In the southern part of the country the pump project also works with refugees from the Central African Republic.

Having had the opportunity to learn more about the people and the subject, I am now interested to continue working in collaboration with similar projects in Africa.

Working for NABU in Ethiopia

Lake Tana area, Ethiopia, 2017. Women working in a reforestation project.

Beginning of the year I travelled back to Ethiopia, this time to work again for NABU, the German Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union. Travelling around the Lake Tana area with the local NABU staff, I documented the many aspects of their reforestation projects which are a collaboration between NABU, the local government and the local population.

Harvesting beans in Costa Rica


Bustamante, Costa Rica, 2017. Harvesting beans.

Over Christmas and New Year's I visited Costa Rica to look into traditional subsistence farming. Some say that in Costa Rica "children are born with bread under their arms". This saying makes reference to the tradition of family farming which allowed families to live rather self-sufficient in the past. Today there are only few families still living in the old ways while the country is becoming more urbanised and people buy their food supplies in the super markets. In Bustamante some still eat the beans they plant and harvest on their own land.
