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.
Thank you immensely for the gift of clean water to us. I have just put to birth a baby boy and this will go a long way to ease the washing of his napkins. We go about a kilometer to fetch water which is not even clean. This is the cause of our malaria.
