Hello, we are team GetInvolved!, a team of Industrial Design students from the TU Delft.Together with the company aQysta, a company that produces irrigation pumps for farmers all over the world powered by streaming water in rivers we have started a new project.
In this project we will develop a pump for small farmers in Nepal. These farmers suffer from drought, because their farmlands are located on higher grounds then nearby rivers and streams. Currently existing pumps are too expensive for these farmers and often require fuel. Therefore there is a need for a cheaper, sustainable solution to get the water from the rivers up to their farmlands.
In this project we will visit Nepal, first for research and after the development of the pump we will go there again for validation.
We will keep you updated!
