Sustainable Water Systems

With any dona­tion you can make a differ­ence.


Support b.water­MIS­SION, a project of AQUA PEARLS For You and Planet Blue Foun­da­tion. With this project, we have set ourselves the goal of building wells in mainly rural areas of Africa, thereby ensuring the access to clean drinking water. With b.water­MIS­SION, the basis for the sustain­able and reli­able imple­men­ta­tion is already set. Now it is our (joint) task to build as many taps as possible.

Our targets for the building of taps:

Creating awareness, that water – the elixir of life – is of VALUE.

Ensuring sustainable operation via online monitoring and on-site maintenance:

  • Construction of several thousand taps in the next few years
  • Access to safe and clean drinking water
  • Ensuring, that nobody has to walk further than 150 m to the next tapping point

“Before the tap was only open at 9am to 12pm and in the evening also 5-6pm. It was so difficult for us, honestly. It’s so perfect now, because anytime you need water you can get it, even at midnight.”
Asanatou Mballow, Female Villager, Jarreng

How it works

The b.waterMISSION tap is an intelligent water dispenser which ensures, that the operation is technically monitored. All income can be tracked, controlled, and used transparently by private organizations or authorities to be able to pay for the ongoing maintenance of the systems.

Payment via mobile phone and NFC technology

The villagers can use their mobile phone to purchase a b.water­MIS­SION credit, which is saved on the b.water­MIS­SION tag. With remote prepay­ment, trace­able water credits can be sent to the taps by author­i­ties, the local villagers, but also by donors all around the world.

The b.water­MIS­SION tech­nology even works in rural areas with poor data connec­tions, as low-bandwidth mobile connec­tion is used. In remote areas, the NFC tech­nology enables the consumers to load the credit directly on the tag and there­with source water from the tap.


b.water­MIS­SION taps

The use of the Internet of Things (IoT) and NFC technology make it possible, to save the b.waterMISSION credit on the b.waterMISSION tag. The amount of water used is deducted from the credit on the tag. By scanning the tag on the fountain, the water comes out of the tap. The income guarantees the sustainable operation and maintenance of the taps. All data regarding water consumption and the status of the taps are monitored by live tracking of the entire tap system.

Real-​time data and statis­tics

The b.water­MIS­SION taps directly commu­ni­cate with a cloud-​based analysis soft­ware, which contin­u­ously provides data about the water system in real time. The soft­ware records all trans­ac­tions in a central data­base for trans­parent reporting. Due to this tech­nical remote moni­toring, oper­a­tional and perfor­mance prob­lems of each indi­vidual tap can be iden­ti­fied quickly. Low flow rates and malfunc­tions are detected and enable the oper­a­tions and main­te­nance teams to act quickly.

Why b.water­MIS­SION?

With any donation, you can make a difference.

b.water­MIS­SION is a project to support the sustain­able access to water in Africa.

Bene­fits of clean water:

  • Improve­ment of the general health of the popu­la­tion, espe­cially in rural areas
  • Chil­dren can go to school instead of carrying water over long distances

Bene­fits of a sustain­able water system:

  • Less waste of water and access to the taps 24/7
  • Short distance to the taps

BWT Distance Award

Meter by meter - drop by drop - let's change the world together!

As part of the BWT Distance Award, every meter jumped in all individual competitions in the current season counts. One tap is built every 18,000 meters.
