Holland Water Goes Africa Foundation was established in September 2008 with the aim of supporting Africa in solving their water problems. The first years of existence were focused on testing this drilling method. Floris de Vos, chairman of this foundation, had criss-crossed Africa in 2010 to test the self-designed derrick and had immediately set up 2 successful drilling companies with the local population of The Gambia and Kenya.. Back in the Netherlands, Floris knew that it could all be done much simpler and then developed the FLOFLO do-it-yourself derrick together with the Zeeland company ‘t Hekkenhuis.
In the summer of 2011, the first FLOFLOs were produced in Terneuzen and sold immediately. The map of Africa shows how many countries are currently drilling with the FLOFLO. This young no-nonsense foundation proved that development work could indeed be done differently! FLOFLO has been designed, among other things, to take action before the disasters occur. By using the money efficiently and allowing the population to work and learn for themselves, developing countries can save themselves. We believe that solving the water problem can also resolve economic, social and medical problems by tackling the problem at the base. Water is the basis of our lives!
