LBW - Life needs water
The LBW (“Leben braucht Wasser” – “Life needs Water”) association is a relief organisation based in Austria and Germany that specialises in the construction of drinking water supply wells in arid countries worldwide. Our team accepts the challenge to build supply wells for drinking water in regions of extreme draught in order to provide people with access to clean drinking water.
One important task in our organisation is to train and qualify young men as well-builders. Together with our partner organisations in Africa, we train adolescents there to construct drinking water supply wells and spring tappings themselves after they have qualified. With this professional training they acquire the know-how necessary to establish their own well building companies.
OUR CONCEPT HAS THREE ASPECTS:
With the help of LBW, people in Africa get access to clean drinking water for a life in dignity.
With the help of LBW, young people get professional training and the know-how necessary to set up their own businesses.
With the help of LBW, people in Africa get jobs to feed their families.
