I am helping UNIWATER EDUCATION ltd in their fundraising effort. Here is SWitzerland many raw material, mining and oil companies have their headquarter….

Discussing with Laurra Olmsted, I could confirm a strange pattern fo hydrogeologist (and geologist dealing with water): there is no job for them despite the desperate need for water in many rural areas in Africa. LAurra pointed out also another alarming fact: the lack of knowledge about Groundwater in general. here is what she says:

“I find incredible is the lack of knowledge or information on groundwater.  As a groundwater specialist it is frustrating to see the potential if gw were to be developed, but for some reason, even those people who should be informed about the potential (vs surface water) continue to only talk about surface water.  As a profession, this is a challenge, and one that needs to be talked up in general, at every opportunity that arises.”

Next to dealing with the Internet and marketing, I am Msc geologist myself and so I decided to step in and take action for what I can..
