Handing Over Ceremony of the GTHS Alabukam Water Project

After about 14 months of meetings and construction work, the GTHS Alabukam Water Project finally came to a close. The handing over ceremony took place on the 26th of May 2011. It was a huge occasion with pomp and fanfare in which important dignitaries from the city of Bamenda were present. The Senior Divisional Officer for Bamenda II, the Mayor for Bamenda II, his Royal Highness San Angwafo III Fon of Mankon et cetera were in attendance. The Vice President of Kamerun4AfrikaClub in Cameroon, Dr. Tsi Evaristus Angwafo read a speech in which he pleaded to the school authorities to see into the sustainability of the project. Here is an excerpt of his >speech< and >that< of the Principal Mr Chi Nyamboli. On the part of Kamerun4AfrikaClub, we will still be keeping an eye on the project in case GTHS Alabukam might have some difficulties in its management.

The GTHS Alabukam Water Project - My Visit

When I was on a private visit to Cameroon, I stold time on the 13.05.2011 to visit the GTHS Alabukam Water Project.

I was impressed with the work done so far.Apart from minor works that must be done, the water project is ready to be handed to the school authorities.
The handing-over ceremony will be done on the 26.05.2011. Invitations from many dignitories in Bamenda have been sent. The Fon of Mankon will be in attendance.


Water Supply System at the GTHS Alabukam

On 03/03/2010, we received an application from the principal (Mr Chi Nyamboli) of Government Technical High School (GTHS) Alabukam. Alabukam is a suburb of the Bamenda municipality. In his letter he pleaded for assistance for the construction of a portable water supply in his institution. He complained that many of the children fail to attend classes because they fall sick after drinking unclean water from streams, which flow around the vicinity of the school. Click here to read the full letter of application from the principal.


We, as an association that has devoted itself for the education of the needy treated this application with all seriousness. Illnesses like diarrhea and dysentery are of the past and do not belong in this era. For this reason, it is unimaginable and heart-breaking to learn that some people in some parts of the world are still prisoners of these illnesses and thus putting their lives at risk.


Since this was an unforeseen project for us and we could not do any budgeting with our little financial resources, we went on a campaign trail for funds. About 5000 € to 6000 € will be needed to construct a modern bore well facility that will serve the entire school and members of the immediate neighborhood. There are about 800 children enrolled in this technical college. For a beginning a geophysical studies have been conducted and the initial drilling has begun. Here are some of the pictures.


To complete this project, we are still seeking for funds and we call on all people of good will and our well wishers to assist us in this task in trying to make drinking water accessible to an entire school and community. We thank you for your assistance.
