Too many communities in severalregions of Cameroon, Central Africa, and Guinee Equatorial do not have year-round access to a supply of safe drinking water.  Although many have a water supply system of some sort, the systems are often badly in need of both extension and repair.  As a result, most villagers are dependent on water from polluted streams during at least one or two months of the dry season. The result is rampant sickness from typhoid, diarrhea and other diseases that can often be fatal to very young children. Residents often don’t understand the causes and costs of water contamination As a result, they may be reluctant to pay the annual water levy to access something that looks the same as the water they can get free from the stream; they don’t provide adequate protection of the areas around the water catchments; and simple and easily implemented measures for water conservation (such as not leaving taps running) and for water purification (such as leaving the home supply to sit a day in the sun before drinking) are neglected.


Water Affects Education

Lack of safe water and sanitation in schools affects children’s learning.

By providing a secure sustainable water source:

  • schools become equipped to provide education and children are able to spend more time learning
  • students are able to focus on their education without stomach pains and diarrhea from disease and hunger
  • schools are able to run programs by providing water to students, faculties and their families


What We Build

We have learned each community we serve is different. From basic geology, to climate and culture, many factors determine the most sustainable project type to provide access to clean and safe water.

The Water Project has experience helping communities drill boreholes, dig wells, construct small sub-surface dams, catch rain, protect fresh-water springs, filter surface water, and maintain proper sanitation and hygiene practices.

Cleaner water leads to agricultural development, higher levels of education and improved health and security

Every child has the right to safe drinking water.

Globally, more than 125 million children under five years of age live in households without access to an improved drinking-water source, and more than 280 million children under five live in households with poor sanitation facilities. Every one of these children is a unique individual whose rights are infringed and whose health is threatened from birth by the lack of access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation.

On average, nearly 1,000 children die every day from diarrhoeal diseases linked to unsafe drinking water, poor sanitation, or poor hygiene.

Ong Africa works to provide the hardest to reach children with the water they desperately need. For £9 month you could help ten families caught up in emergencies or natural disasters to collect, store and even purify water.

You can help us provide clean, safe water to children around the world. Please donate now.
