Who We Are

Ottawa-Kumbo Partnership
The OK Clean Water Project takes its name from the link that has been developed between Ottawa, Canada and Kumbo, Cameroon, Africa.

The volunteers in Ottawa raise funds to support the water delivery systems being built in Kumbo and surrounding villages. The villagers in and around Kumbo volunteer their labour to build the water delivery structures and then receive training to manage and maintain the water supply. In doing so they establish ownership of their efforts.
I am the eldest of seven children so in many ways I have to replace my father and take care of the family. My mother is a hard working farmer but counts a lot on me. Having running water in our compound is more than we can imagine.
