We already invested € 1.243.489 to several water projects with the help of our partners. We are working from the EARTH philosophy since 2007 and made contributions to several partners in the first three years. Since 2011 we decided to make contributions to water projects only. Scroll down to see some of the water projects that are complete with the investments from EARTH Concepts:

    Olguluglui Rivier Project

    Donation: € 93.166 

    Arkefly, Eurosonic, Rock & Run2013 and EARTH Concepts have the goal to bring back te old state of the Kaijado river in Kenia. By climate change and the short rainy season, the area has become increasingly drier which brings harm to the animals and Masai villagers who live there. By a dam built, the water may spread resulting in the re-growing plants, even in the dry season. By bringing back the river, there is a possibility to produce clean drinking water for 10,000 Maisai people and the wildlife that live in the area.
