Crowdfunding since 2010

We are researching for a hydroponic system that allows vegetables to grow in the desert.

Malnutrition and insufficient food supply are common challenges in many parts of Africa. We want to change this and, together with the local population, develop a water-saving hydroponic cultivation system for growing vegetables in desert regions. This would enable people to supply themselves with food independently and sustainably in the long term. With this research project, we are making an effective contribution to combating hunger and the causes of flight.
