“Visiting small isolated communities up on the high plateau in the North East region of Ethiopia, I witnessed this dramatic reality: the lack of potable water. The villagers live in a beautiful natural environment but often without running water, electricity, a toilet or shower. To help improve this drastic situation, I made it our mission to find solutions and help these people”, said Arturo Vittori.


Warka Tower is a vertical structure designed to collect and harvest potable water from the air, providing an alternative water source for rural populations that face challenges accessing drinkable water. The canopy creates a shaded social space where the community can gather for education and public meetings. With photovoltaic panels, the Tower serves as a charging station, allowing villagers to power mobile phones and laptop computers, and offers an illuminated place to study and socialize after the sun goes down.
