Help people access safe and clean water.
Almost a billion human beings in the world lack basic access to clean, safe drinking water. Autour de l'Eau's mission is to assist people in rural Cameroon build and maintain sustainable, efficient water systems. In addition to financing and organizing the physical construction of these systems, we work closely with our local partners to ensure that our projects meet their economic, social, and cultural needs. Over the past eleven years, Autour de L'Eau has facilitated the construction of numerous sanitary toilets and mechanized water pumps in the city of Kribi. Having already built a water tower in Grand Batanga, our current focus is on completing a new water distribution system that will bring drinking water into the homes of four thousand people. Access to safe water leads to positive and sustainable change in terms of health, education, higher literacy rates and quality of life. Please join us in helping people in Cameroon enjoy the benefits of purified, safe water for drinking and sanitation. The American Friends of About Water In Africa is a branch of the French nongovernmental organization, Autour de l'Eau. Check out our Facebook page.
