REHABILITATION OF WATER POINTS
The water is life. But in Africa, many peoples still consume contaminated water. In rural areas of Cameroon, it is increasingly difficult to find drinking water, although clean and colorless, quality of water we have is still bad and causing damage in those who consume it.
"water for all" is the goal that the organization has given WEBDEV FOUNDATION for the purpose to bring the rural clean water. These objectives are in effect by the various rearrangements of water points. Thus we have already rehabilitate a water point in Kamna last summer, but couldn't achieve what we really wanted for the community there, because of a lack of finance, we just help the population there to have access to a clean but not potable water for domestic usage. Next year, we will be working to install a real potable water point on the same area.
The main objective of our community sport program is the promotion of youths in the involvement of community development and leadership. In a society like Cameroon mired in poverty, young people could be faced with a range of problems which could lead to distress and even mental illnesses.
Sports play a vital role in the economic and social well being of our communities, state and nation. Those who excel in sports could become bread winners for their families and change their fortunes dramatically. World famous players like Leonel Messi are from poor desolate families.
