Title: PUMPMAKERS: Provide water & work to tackle poverty!
“In the Maasai region I saw people walk over 30 miles a day searching for scarce amounts of water for their families. I saw broken hand pumps because of lack of maintenance. I saw fuel driven water pumps not working because of the lack of money to run them. Existing water wells were outdated and needed to be improved and this is what brought me to the idea of building a solarpowered water pump that avoids these disadvantages and can be manufactured locally. Water is our most preciousresource. Water is life.” Dietmar Stuck, CEO & Founder
