Grow hope for 150 Cameroon schoolkids
 
Our demonstration gardens reduce reliance on chemical pesticides and fertilizers while increasing agricultural productivity and providing better nutrition. This project works with 5 primary schools in Cameroon schools to develop self-sufficient, climate-resilient, earth-friendly gardens to inspire the next generation of farmers. The produce, seeds, knowledge, and skills produced will help the whole community eat more nutritiously with less work for years to come. project reportread updates from the field
Protect 70,000 villagers from typhoid in Cameroon
 
Of the 20 villages in Batibo (pop. 70,000), all but one have at least a rudimentary water supply system, but none is adequate to provide clean water year round. This project supports the work of a community organizer to work with local councils to protect catchment areas, teach the importance of water purification and conservation, install point-of-use treatment, hire and train caretakers and fund infrastructure rehabilitation. project reportread updates from the field
Show 138 Cameroon women a new way to farm
 
Easier. Cheaper. Healthier. More climate resilient. More earth-friendly. A food forest designed around quick growing, nutrient-rich moringa trees stabilizes and fertilizes the soil; stores water and provides shade for resilience during draught; provides a healthy habitat for bees and other beneficial insects; regenerates naturally; and yields a biodiverse supply of healthy fruits and vegetables. We will work with 4 women's groups in Oku to help them establish their own food forests. project reportread updates from the field
A math project for Cameroon kids that saves lives
 
The water supply system in Oku, Cameroon is in desperate need of rehabilitation and extension; kids are dying from typhoid and diarrhea as a result of drinking from contaminated streams. But to design improvements properly, reliable water flow information must be collected for a year. We teach 200 kids in six Oku schools how to measure and calculate water flow, providing a powerful real life application of geometry and complex arithmetic skills, and supplying engineers essential information. project reportread updates from the field
