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.
Water is now running in my compound. I am grateful. All my neighbours are happy too. We are feeling very free. No more worry about clean water. No more shortage of water. No more carrying heavy containers for long distances. Joy is in our hearts.
