Have been in development work using technologies as a triggering point for further development for over 25 years. Bringing up water to very high elevations and making life in the communities easier is still very energizing despite the work not always being easy. Seeing the ram pump spreading the Philippines and now also to other countries is fantastic.

The project is about pumping water over high elevations from sources below communities and farms. Its about a water powered pump which is locally manufactured thereby keeping its cost low and the probability for promotion and spreading high. Bringing water into the upland villages changes lives.
