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.
When we take a cup of this clean water I count on good health for my family because we have enough water to wash ourselves, our clothes and keep our house clean. We feel we are free from many disturbing diseases.
