PROGRAMS & PROJECTS.

AFRICAIS.LIFE currently supports THE COFFEE COLLEGE and its projects (www.coffeecollege.org). THE COFFEE COLLEGE offers a combination of ACADEMIA (Education) and COMMERCE (Work). We want to highlight some of the projects, which are life changers to people in Africa. All these projects are built in Ethiopia for its own use and also for export.

ACADEMIA (Education)

THE COFFEE COLLEGE with its partner the TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF MUNICH (TUM) - www.tum.de are offering 

- Masters Degree Program

- Bachelors Program

- Undergraduate Program (learning trades)

- Dual Academy (under development) 

Start 2021/2022

COMMERCE (Work)

The Coffee College Commerce (CO3) Program provides the work places to provide elements necessary to sustain and extend current production in the country (value added chain). Coffee, cocoa or tea production can be increased by activating idle farm land. For activating old plantations and avoid deforestation some of the following elements are necessary (see images and description):

Mobile Power Generation

Power Container (Diesel, Wind, Solar).pn

What is it good for?

- Power for processing harvested crops

- Electricity for housing and farms

- Backup Power for existing systems

What do people learn/need to build this item in Africa?

- Power Engineer

- Electrician

- Metal Worker/Welder

Mobile power generation the core strategy for decentralised power supply. These units rang from 100kw to 3.5MW and provide a mix (diesel, solar, wind) and steady power supply to communities of all ranges. They're also useful as power backups to existing power systems.

Medical Bus 

Medibuses

What is it good for?

- Medical Support for needy people on the streets

- First Aid Station on strategic points

- Mobile and flexible in its final use and location

What do people learn/need to build this item in Africa?

- Medical Engineer

- IT Experts

- Electricians

- Carpenter

Medical Buses are transformed from regular buses, typically used to transport people from A to B. Based on this particular example we want to show sequences of how such buses are transformed and what difference such buses make in peoples' lives.

These medical buses are becoming the backbone of the medical system in developing countries. the buses will be operated in major cities and locations and provide a "right on spot" medical supply to the needy. People without insurance coverage and lack of income are not covered by medical supply. These buses will take on these chill ages and local doctors, nurses and students provide medical supply for free. 

AFRICAIS.LIFE is buying regular used Mercedes Benz buses which are replaced by municipalities and transport organisations in Germany. These transportation buses will be transformed into Medical Buses in Addis Ababa for their own use and export.  

Medical Container

Medicontainer

What is it good for?

- Medical Support for needy people on the streets

- First Aid Station on strategic points

- Mobile and flexible in its final use and location

What do people learn/need to build this item in Africa?

- Medical Engineer

- IT Experts

- Electricians

- Carpenter

-Metal Worker/Welder

Each new project and people working on it, like the reactivation of an idle coffee farm requires medical assistance. These medical containers provide a First Aid facility right on spot. Local doctors and nurses will provide a 24/7 service and international medical students will learn through an students exchange program with German and Austrian universities and hospitals. 

Such medical containers can also be easily positioned on central points or existing production facilities. 

RAM Pumps

RAM Pumps

What is it good for?

- Water Supply without power/electricity

- Water for housing, farms and irrigation

What do people learn/need to build this item in Africa?

- Water & Irrigation Systems Specialist

- Metalworker/Welder

RAM Pumps or pumps without electricity provide a lifeline for households, farming (cattle) and irrigation. We're supporting this program to teach how to plan the water supply from the source to the fi al location and how to build these pumps in Ethiopia. Our approach goes beyond handling one project with your donations, we'll give interested people the tools to plan and produce themselves. 

Modular Housing

Modular Houses

What is it good for?

- Housing for farm workers

- Housing for Tourists outside of harvesting season

   (outside of harvesting season)

What do people learn/need to build this item in Africa?

- Construction and architectural skills

- Electrician

- Carpenter

- Plumber

- Metalworker/Welder

Micro Sewage Treatment Plant

What is it good for?

- Water Treatment for modular housing

- Water Treatment for farms and plantations

What do people learn/need to build this item in Africa?

- Electrician

- Metalworker/Welder

- Water & Sanitation Specialist

- Chemist

One of the largest sources of diseases in developing countries are open sewers and untreated wastewater. This pool of bacteria and hazardous liquids (human pathogens) endangers ground waters, drinking water and are sources of cholera, typhoid and dysentery.

This educational program and work will be an essential contribution to the peoples' life and health standards. 

Agricultural Equipment

Agri Equipment

What is it good for?

- Increase efficiency and productivity of farming

- Agricultural organisation and systematic approach

What do people learn/need to build this item in Africa?

- Agricultural Specialist

- Environmental Specialist

- Mechanic

- Metalworker/Welder

With your donation we'll acquire sets of agricultural equipment and logistical centres throughout the country will enable to provide crops and food to the local marketplaces. A set consists of:

- Tractor

- Plough

- Harrow

- Seeding machine

Within 2-3 seasons the agricultural output per hectare can be increased from ca. 1.000kg/hectare to ca 3.000kg/hectare.
