WATER AND SANITATION

Water is one of the most valuable and influential natural resources because of its industrial and domestic importance. Access to safe water is essential to sustain life and indispensable for a healthy and dignified life. Unfortunately according to UNICEF, only 44% of people in rural areas of Cameroon have access to safe drinking water. Many communities rely on doubtful water sources which at times are shared with animals. Moreover, women and children trek long distances to get drinking water; wasting valuable time which could be use for economic and academic pursuit
Objective To ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all through the provision of potable water and construction of toilets with hand washing facilities for rural and urban poor communities, health centers and schools.
The program consists of 2 main parts: How it works: The program consists of: Provision of potable water through either gravity, protected wells and boreholes to rural and urban poor communities, schools and health centres Training of water management committees on sustainable water management Protection of water catchments through tree planting Achievements: More than 130 rural and urban poor communities, 70 schools, and 30 health centers have been provided with potable water. Water management committees have been trained in all communities that have benefited from the water and sanitation program Moreover, the catchment areas of all water projects are protected through life fencing and planting of water shed trees. Challenges: This program faces several challenges, namely:  Bad roads to some communities and limited transport facilities (vehicle)  Insufficient funds for the running and execution of projects Excessive population pressure to the detriment of water catchments Climate change affecting water sources The number of applications from needy communities surpass SHUMAS’ ability to intervene Future Plans: SHUMAS is gradually extending her Water and Sanitation program to all the 10 Regions in Cameroon.
