Well construction for 27 villages in Tikar region - Cameroon

The motto “Helping others help themselves”, TOOLS FOR LIFE promotes water analysis and well repair, because the approx. 14 wells that were constructed for the 28 villages require long-term maintenance. Moreover, periodical water analyses are necessary, so that the water quality can be monitored and the health of the regions villagers protected.

A recent inventory done by Issa Nyaphaga showed that from the 28 villages in the Tikar region, 6 were equipped with a functioning pump, in 5 communities the pumps were defect, 3 didn’t function at all and 16 villages don’t even have a pump.

In a best-case scenario, in which all the pumps are installed, over 12,000 people would have simple access to drinking water.

As a first step, we are working towards repairing the 5 defective pumps and purchasing and installing 7 additional pumps. We are also working on the delivery of small equipment (power generator, welding units, etc.), as well as the training of an on-site service team.

The background to the project

In the region of the “Tikars” in Cameroon, the residents are confronted daily with a multitude of difficulties. Other than the most important problem of public health and energy supply, this community has a specific need for drinking water.

My TOOLS FOR LIFE staff trip to Senegal in 2012 was a unique experience. And the fact that I was standing on a meadow where today, after only two years, there is a school for several hundred pupils, which the Foundation helped to finance, is almost unbelievable. Great cause and great projects that make a little bit of a difference in the world.
