Cameroon, 2007

BACKGROUND

In February 2007, we traveled to this Northwest African nation to train several local and international missions groups in hand augering and in soap-making. All of the details and logistics were coordinated by nationals. We worked from Bamenda with the project being in Ntem, a village of about 2,000 people. We drilled one of only 2 wells in the immediate area that have water during the dry season. The well we drilled is located in a primary school serving 132 kids (part of the Cameroon European Union Cooperation). Soap training was given to about 30 people, including one local pastor who hopes to use this new skill as an outreach to Muslims in the north of the country. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we were able to leave an EXP-50 drill rig in the care of locals.
