About us

We are a non-profit organization, which unites students, researchers, alumni and friends of the Technical University of Munich.

We are fostering sustainable development for African communities through research-based solutions. Our energy-water-food system built in Saint Rupert Mayer, Zimbabwe, is the world's first of its kind. We aim at bringing our sustainable system to many more villages and countries in Africa.

The sustainability of the projects can only be ensured through the involvement of local people. Hence, we provide self-designed trainings for the community and support the operation of the system on technical and social levels. In addition, we link the projects with local stakeholder including universities and spread the word on scientific conferences to create a global network.

Dear friends of TU eMpower Africa e.V.,

we have some exciting news to share. Our member Franz just last week returned from a privately organized site visit to St. Rupert Mayer, the first in more than two years. Together with the local community, we now have a functioning drip irrigation in place. Also, we have made initial purchases of jars and other small stuff as food processing infrastructure. The local community thereby wants to avoid food waste and improve food security.

Next, we plan to further develop the agribusiness and continue with our assessment of the feasibility of agroforestry.

We would like to thank all donors, local community members and volunteers for their support in contributing to a more sustainable future.
