Introduction to Our Africa Page

Our goal is to help people substantiate their plans more effectively. Infrastructure projects are always long-term endeavors. This requires knowledge and the ability to plan far into the future.

Take, for example, the construction of a new city in Maluku, DRC. We need to consider the current population of the DRC and project those numbers 25 to 50 years into the future. For instance, the population is expected to be 105 million in 2025, 217 million in 2050, and very likely over 400 million by 2075 if current trends continue.

Facing Kinshasa and other cities in DRC and Afrika

To avoid the issues currently facing Kinshasa, we must take these projections into account when planning a new city for millions. How will traffic look in 50 years? It will undoubtedly be different from today. While Africa may currently lag behind other parts of the world, we need to anticipate future mobility trends and plan our neighborhoods accordingly. The city must remain livable, which means designing a mobility system that meets future needs and housing that accommodates 5 to 8 people per household.

Another important factor is the significant rainfall in the DRC, which is expected to increase due to climate change. Warmer air can hold more water, leading to more intense rainfall. This necessitates adequate drainage infrastructure. We must consider numerous parameters, such as the number of schools and sports fields required.


Our Mission & Approach

We hope that the churches in Africa and the DRC will take their responsibility and help prevent this economic disaster. The DRC is vast, with plenty of space, but the economy is not robust. A population growth of 10% compared to an economic growth of 5% will only lead to more poverty. That’s why we need to work with experts like Jurriaan and local leaders in the DRC to discuss the future. If the Congolese want more population growth, or if the DRC should focus on controlling and reducing it, prosperity will increase for everyone in the DRC.


Projects We Have Contributed to in Africa

In South Africa:

  • Century City, Cape Town: Built on marshland.
  • Ratanga Junction, Century City, Cape Town: A significant development in the region.
  • Mossel Bay: Development of 650 houses.

In Madagascar:

  • Housing Project near Antananarivo: Planning and development of 25,000 houses in collaboration with Seimad, a Malagasy construction company.
  • Water Shortage Plan for Southern Madagascar: Developed a plan addressing the water shortage. The problem isn’t a lack of water but rather a lack of proper water retention; rainwater quickly flows away due to deforested mountains.
  • Water Factory and Seaport in Manompana, Northern Madagascar: Designed a water factory with a capacity of 2 million cubic meters per day and planned a seaport.

In Namibia:

  • Solar Park Project (1999): Developed a plan for a large solar park on the IJzerplaat, covering 2 square kilometers. The project aimed to use parabolic trough solar collectors to provide power to the copper mine, with heat stored in salt tanks up to 800 degrees Celsius, ensuring a continuous power supply day and night.

Collaboratively, we can chart a sustainable path forward for the DRC, ensuring that development is well-planned and the economy can support its growing population.

“Infrastructure projects demand foresight and planning. As we build for the future, we must consider everything from population growth to climate change, ensuring our cities remain livable and sustainable. Together, we can chart a path that balances development with the needs of our growing communities.”
