The project for present and future of the blessed country (Egypt)

The project " River of Hope" and his branches is the elemental, predetermined breakthrough for Egypt

Enlargement of the agricultural surface by utilisation of the desert, inter- alias with help of the occupational therapy of the "sanatorium" for re-education and putting up of morale and health.
Creation of stability and security; guarantee of food for the next generations; build-up of civilization, which again revives the oldest glorious civilization in history.

The idea of the project "River of hope" and his branches

The project of Al Samir as thesis (diploma) in Germany for the academic subject civil engineering.

An intuition as a hope for continuation of life for the Egyptian nation trough setting up development projects for agriculture and economics:

Increasing the agricultural surface, in order to intercept rising consumption by the vast population growth; Utilization of the desert, in order to make her prosper and flower and to fetch and use the enormous natural resources resting within her; Utilization of the surplus of Nile water and the enormous groundwater supply under the desert to create an area with healthily climate for development of animal breeding.

The kick off for the project "River of Hope" and its branches

  • The gross national product will always be based on both agriculture and industry, in present and future, even if the industry makes large progress.

  • Termination of stagnancy and being cemented within a narrow strip on the Nile bank during thousands of years.

  • To increase the standard of living in Egypt by the only possibility (no other alternative): Securing of nutrition and antrophospere for the nation in the near future and for the next generations.

  • A national project for the planning of the future of Egypt: Possibly no direct profit will be evident immediately, where at present most Egyptians are keen of and accustomed to count on; but certainly the profit will show up in the near future.

  • It is proved that below the west desert rests an enormous groundwater lake.

  • From the Nile tide water of the last years there exists an excess reserve in the reservoir, increasing year by year behind the dam.

  • In Egypt a giant expectation insists on the increase of the Nile water, if our Nile valley neighbour (the Sudan) leads to an end of the Jungle Canal project, i.e. if the remaining approx. 90 kilometres by the overall length of 200 kilometres are completed.

  • Accomplish the practical step in the historical confrontation with the desert region, which covers 96% of the Egyptian soil.
    Our ancestors 4000 years ago succeeded in snatching away a piece of desert along the Nile river: the agricultural surface, we are living on now.
    We don't have lesser abilities and penetration strength than they had, particularly with the enormous scientific progress, in the near future to make come true our hope for plentiful agricultural products (Egypt imports at present nearly 80% of its food), by snatching away an enormous piece of the west desert making it arable and subservient for the valley of the "River of Hope".

  • Invest the natural resources and our people in building a great and better future for Egypt:
    At present time we face an ever increasing, immense growth of population. Of the tremendous area of desert surface a substantial amount can be made available for agriculture with the enormous groundwater supply (both under the desert and in the Nile valley, which salts the soil and endangers old cultural monuments). All those are unappreciated treasures our country badly needs to use to build up the present and as a base plate for the future.

  • It is a heavy and laborious project, because for our present intolerable conditions it brings, in course, big changes in several directions. But we have no other choice than to attempt this break-through with all our strength, ability to assert ourselves and our continuously strong will.

The goals of the project "River of hope"

  1. Deepen the national sense for that the desert is the natural expansion for the Nile valley: Build city- and village-communities, growing and flowering in the valley of the "River of Hope"; Change the Egyptian map in geographical and population-wise regard by cultivation and settling of the desert; implement the so far only as desired existing agricultural development.

  2. Stimulation and implementation of the goals of the project "new valley", which was planned  in the 60's west of the Nile (in the west desert at the border to the Nile valley); what partially was accomplished then, meanwhile is decayed.

  3. Use of the enormous energy of sun and wind in the desert for generation of current.

  4. Restore agricultural space Egypt lost in course of history by using fertile soil to manufacture clay bricks (what remains, are sand and salty groundwater), and creeping propagation of tilled areas due to the continuous immense growth of  population and the big decay of efficiency in agricultural production at present and to stop encroachment of the desert which erodes the current agriculture.

  5. Independence by self-sufficiency within the domains of agricultural production and animal breeding.

  6. Reclamation and cultivation work in the desert facilitate conveyance and utilization of the rich natural resources of ore etc., resting in the desert.

  7. Ending the hopeless speech about necessary elimination of population growth, because God is the giving: Egypt needs a manifold of the present population, if the current agricultural and habitable surface is multiplied.

  8. Exploitation of the enormous desert surface: 

    • In order to take up population growth and by expansion of industry and economics in the new cities along the "River of Hope".

    • Practical future planning for the large area between the two rivers, the Nile and the "River of Hope", also change of a very large surface by cultivation of large forests with trees which can grow between 6 - 10 m per annum and are suitable for a desert region, to attract rainfall, particularly west of the "River of Hope", as in central Africa, where the temperatures are substantially higher than in Egypt.

  9. Take advantage of the largest groundwater reservoir of the world, which exists like a flooding in the belly of the desert, along the valley of the "River of Hope". Scientific data confirm that the groundwater height there amounts to between 30 and 250 meters. In addition the project offers a possibility of lowering the at present too high ground-water level in the Nile valley which endangers groundings of the buildings and historical monuments and salts the agricultural soil in the Nile valley.

  10. Lowering of the ground-water level to allow the salted soil in the Nile valley to recover:

    • Bypass of the largest quantity of the Nile water south of the storage lake to the "River of Hope" at least during the coming 10 years.

    • Use of the Nile valley ground water for modern irrigation procedures with steered dripping or sprinkling installations, so that agriculture only receives the necessary water, without resulting drainage problems or loss of large surfaces (about half of the agricultural soil) from irrigation canals for the inundation methods in use since the time of Pharaohs.

  11. Deviation of the surplus water accumulating in the storage lake, also the water, which covers the Nubian area by the annual flooding taking place. Thus gaining for agricultural purposes several hundred thousand hectares of the enormous Nubian area, which is fertile by Nile alluvium deposits. (This area is nearly as large as the agricultural surface in the Nile valley without the Nile delta).
    This way the fertile mud with its minerals reaches the valley of the "River of Hope" which at its end forms a lake in the Qattara-dip.  Later, also the old Nile valley is reached by development of channels between the two rivers.
    All this and cultivation of forests also in the large area between the two rivers will change the climate in the area of the "River of Hope" and the Qattara-dip. The rain attracted will replace the water that evaporates from the "River of Hope" and lake the Qattara-dip. This forest cultivation partially is a product of the work done by people staying in the "sanatorium for re-education and putting up of morale and health".


  12. Construction of numerous hydro-electric power plants along the "River of Hope" to supply current for the expected enormous industrial progress of modern Egypt, covering the needs of development and progress of the new cities, being built along the "River of Hope" and around the lake in the Qattara-dip.

  13. Development of the Qattara-dip and the lake in the Qattara-dip:

    • Building of two huge hydro-electric power plants for generation of current at the two estuary creeks of the "River of Hope" into the lake in the Qattara-dip, later replacing or supplementing the generation of current at the Aswan dam.

    • Expanded pisciculture in the lake to obtain a large fish density, covering both internal and export requirements.

    • Repair of damaging effects which arose from the Aswan dam.

  14. Construction of the new capital on the bank of the lake in the delta of the "River of Hope" in the Qattara-dip, 280 km westward of the pyramids. Life in the current capital is intolerable and no end can be seen as to the necessary repairs (18 million inhabitants, in addition all means of transport, nearly 2/3 of all Egyptian factories and all authorities on a surface not much larger than Munich with less than 1,3 million citizens). Cairo suffers from the largest air pollution in the world, which destroys the health of  current and future generations, particularly causing incurable diseases of the nervous system and cancer.


Implementation and completion of the project "River of hope" must exceed any more than three years.
The project "River of hope" remains the only and heaviest choice for the construction of a modern state, without alternative, in the cruellest and most miserable epoch in the history of Egypt.

Either we continue our fall towards the inferno, or we protect and earn our and the coming generations life.

Nothing is impossible or insurmountable, if one wants to achieve a historical act.
