Clean water in Cameroon
Women received training in the maintenance and repair of water points
Clean water is a scarcity for communities in Cameroon’s rural north, fuelling sickness and deepening poverty among local families. But thanks to you, over 220,000 people now have access to a life-changing investment in water, sanitation and health with:
Three new boreholes and 20 rehabilitated water points, expanded to include 4 schools and one health centre
- Extensive community engagement in sanitation initiatives, resulting in household latrine construction and an uptake in improved hygiene practices
- Training for more than 340 local people to manage and maintain their new water systems, giving women the chance to take on leadership roles as pump technicians.
