Work and Research

Ulrike is a senior project manager at Bosch Stiftung with a huge passion for Africa – and a solid wish to enable progress in Africa! She lived in Zambia for 2 years, working for the drinking water exploration, supply and related 2020 development plans – which for the first time were able to consider peri-urban and informal settlements into the water supply planning. Her first step into Africa was however in 2000, when she entered Benin and travelled through to Burkina, Cote d’Ivoire, Togo and back to Benin for a final work assignment with GIZ as a water resources intern.
