Our goal
To provide access to safe water, sanitation and better shelter to remote communities in Cameroon.
The Challenge

To have access to hygienic water in a sustainable way

Our scope of action in Cameroon is to support two different ethnic groups; the Pygmies and the Mbororo. Both are facing discrimination and rejection due to their cultural and social difference.

Our Solution

Improve the level of public health for the village.

Warka Sanitation is designed to use simple, sustainable materials indigenous to the region—earth, palm leaves and wood—and constructed adopting local techniques. Two separate sides provide facilities for men and women. With this dry system, waste is turned into useful compost. Each toilet has two holes: one for urine and one for excrement. Liquid waste and solid waste can therefore be separated, which is very important.

Warka Tower is designed to harvest potable water from the atmosphere (it collects rain, harvests fog and dew). It is a passive structure, it functions only by natural phenomena such us gravity, condensation & evaporation and doesn’t require electrical power.

Warka House will provide substantially better shelter with an insulated floor and proper roof to prevent rainwater dripping inside. With our support, the structure will be constructed using ancient local traditions of working with bamboo and other natural materials by the villagers themselves. The upgraded house will offer higher standards of hygiene and comfort for the villagers of this isolated community.

Your Impact

By supporting our project you can help save people’s lives.

Your donation will provide members of the Mvoumagomi community and the Bebambi II village better housing, access to safe water and decent latrine facility, allowing them to stay healthy by preventing waterborne diseases like cholera. Improving the quality of water will improve the quality of life for many members of the community and the economy of the village.
