From Karlsruhe to Tanzania: Alumni KIT Students Discover Move-ING Association for Community Programs in Africa

Two alumni of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) started an association called “Move-ING”. Felix Doher and his partner Katrina Hyde provide enough water for the people in the village of Sabalisa and set up a school. The two can imagine a future together in Africa.

Many believe that education in the larger African continent and other parts of the world, better medical care and higher-yielding agriculture will lay the foundation for equal opportunities and just coexistence in this world.

Water supply is an important requirement

This creates a perspective for young residents, for example staying in Africa. “Reliable water supply is one of the most important prerequisites for creating a livelihood for people in many parts of Africa and forcing them to flee to other parts,” says Felix Dor.

The 30-year-old Wiselock studied civil engineering at the Carlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and completed his master’s degree in 2019 focusing on “water”. “Since graduating from high school, I have traveled to various aid programs in Africa many times,” Dor explains.

Through the University of Karlsruhe, he launched the “Boundless Engineers” (EWP) project, a non-profit university group that uses solar-powered deep wells to provide clean drinking water to many villages in Ethiopia.

Alumni KIT students discover “Move-ING eV”

Half the time he works in an engineering office in the fan-shaped city, and the other half at KIT “with a plan to start a doctorate in the summer”. In 2018, Dore co-founded “Move-ING EV” with his friend Katrina Heide, to continue their volunteer commitment independently in development collaborations and use their technical expertise and project experience in a meaningful way.
