OK Clean Water Celebrates Another Amazing Year with Ottawa Catholic Schools!

 

 The OK Clean Water Project is most grateful to the Ottawa Catholic Schools who have supported our water project in Kumbo, Cameroon again in the school year 2018-2019. This year twenty-one schools brought in an amazing $25,251.94 The schools were most creative in their fundraising engaging in such activities as walk-a-thons, read-a-thons, spirit days, coin lines, pipe lines bake sales, chores at home and other interesting activities to raise money for OK Clean Water Project.  

Presently sixty villages have clean water and more villagers are waiting in hope. As well as providing the materials and planning for the village projects the Cameroonian engineer, Edwin Visi, the Country Director works closely with Collins Yenika providing workshops to the villagers to ensure that the sustainability of each village project is maintained. One well has been built in one village and presently plans are underway to build another one. Repairs and maintenance are the responsibility of the villagers.

This year 2018-2019 the following schools have supported the OK Water Project:

St. Emily, Dr. F.J. McDonald, Good Shepherd, St. Isidore, St. Daniel, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, St. Augustine, St. Bernard, Holy Spirit, St. Brigid, St. John the Apostle, St. George, St. John Paul 11, St. Rita, Our Lady of Peace, Divine Infant, St. Gemma, Thomas D’Arcy McGee, St. Martin de Porres, St. Paul High School, and St. Theresa.  Thank you to All!  As Cameroonians would say Beri Wo!

Over the past sixteen years sixty- one schools have been involved in fundraising activities to raise an amazing $379,365.65 to support this life-giving cause. We are most grateful to all staff, student and parents for your ongoing support and concern for our brothers and sisters in our global community.

Beri Wo!

As the Cameroonians would say “Water is Life!”  “Together We Are One1”

Enjoy your summer! Peace and blessings to All!
