African Impulse - The Ediki Mbonge solar water project
Project Status : Preparing to install the DIY solar system.
Ediki Mbonge is a small village in the southwest province of Cameroon. The living condition of the people there is difficult. The villagers live mainly from subsistence agriculture. The main water source for the more than 7,000 villagers, including a kindergarten and three schools (primary and secondary), comes from a spring lying at the outskirts of the village. The hygienic condition of the water source is very deplorable. We are changing this status quo

Sourcing for funds.
This project is being partly funded through financial subsidy of the State Chancellery of the State of North Rhine WestPhalia in Germany.
Other Germany partners include vision:teilen e.V., Club 16 e.V. and very many individuals.
The company which was contracted to do the water sourcing was eventually contracted to dig the bore-hole. Machines were displaced through difficult terrain.
Work started in the middle of April and by the end of April, water was reached at 44m. The process occured under the supervision of the president of the association
And water now flows...
Since May 2017
DIY Construction stage
We are currently clearing the DIY pump from the Douala port in order to complete the construction of the water system.
It should be noted that the DIY Solar pump will pull water from the well into a tank and eventually through pipes to the users. The village has no electricity.
