Cameroon Clean Water Well Project
A SMALL ACT OF GENEROSITY CHANGES A LIFE FOREVER
Our mission is sample – end clean water crisis one community at a time.
It’s 2021 and clean water is still one of the most desperate needs of poor communities all around the world. A lack of usable water often means disease, hunger and suffering.
Providing access to water gives people back their time. Safe water improves health and education so communities can begin to grow themselves out of poverty.
The water crisis is one of the biggest public health crises of our day. Help us bring Clean Water to communities in Cameroon, Africa and restore hope.
Clean Water Well Project
Site Location: Bekoko, Cameroon
Community Served: 5,000 People
Campaign Goal: $25,000
Every day in rural communities throughout Africa, millions of people suffer from a lack of access to clean, safe water. For school-aged children it’s a burden that traps them in poverty.
Water collection forces women and girls to sacrifice their time and health. Girls under the age of 15 are twice as likely as boys to be the family member responsible for fetching water.
Each day, they spend hours, multiple times per day walking to distant rivers and ponds to find water. Even when they are sick, young girls and women have to make the physically demanding walk everyday. This life robs them of time to learn, time to be a kid, time to earn an income, time to rest, and spend with family.
The benefits of clean and safe water are:
HEALTH – Improves the health of families and children
EDUCATION – Keeps children in school to enhance their education and lives and gives hope to their future.
WOMEN EMPOWERMENT – able to improve their homes, start a business get their lives back
ECONOMIC POTENTIAL – giving families more time to pursue education and work opportunities which helps break the cycle of poverty.
Your support will make that true in the lives of people every day, as they are able to rely on safe water through our Clean Water Project.
