The Association for Research and Promotion of Development Initiatives plans to develop a source for easy access to clean water and provide practical knowledge on hygiene and water treatment for 500 people in the Lada district, Yaounde Cameroon. The project will build a sheet of water and a tapping area with access road. It will also allow the analysis and certification of water quality, the training of beneficiaries on hygiene and water treatment, and the establishment of a management committee
In a context where there is only 10,000 out of 250000 m3 needed per day to meet the demand of the population of the city of Yaounde for drinking water, the Lada district is not served by the national distribution network at all. The growing population is prone to water-borne diseases, due to the consumption of poor quality water from traditional wells contaminated by latrines and untreated or pollution-exposed natural sources.
The project will build a sheet of water and a tapping area with access road. It will also allow the analysis and certification of water quality, the training of beneficiaries on hygiene and water treatment, and the establishment of a management committee of the source.
Ultimately, the project will improve the well-being of the population through easy access and better quality of water consumed. It will be observed the decrease of diseases related to water and decrease of morbidity in Lada. The reinforcement of social cohesion between the inhabitants of the district will not be left behind.
