This project will provide the resources required to implement some key water management initiatives recommended during the Engineers Without Borders Netherlands visit to Oku in January 2018. The Engineers will return in April 2018 once these initiatives are in place to continue their work.
Existing water infrastructure in Oku is unable to support the growing population. Households compete with water users such as farmers for access to a consistent supply of clean water. They are further challenged by inconsistent water supplies during dry seasons and leaking water infrastructure with no means for treatment to a level suitable for potable use.
Two engineers from Engineers Without Borders, Netherlands visited Oku, in North-West Cameroon in January 2018. They have provided a list of recommendations for villages to implement some basic measures to begin to improve the quality and supply of their water. Once CAMAAY have proved a commitment to this work by implementing some basic improvement measures then the engineers will return to further their work on Oku's water supply. CAMAAY have one month to raise funds prior to the their return
Engineers report and guidance will outline what is required to improve access to water for around 2400 households in Oku, North-West Cameroon. Community members will have an improved understanding of how to build and maintain their water supply.
