Water supply for refugees
CAMEROON – We want to help internally displaced people in Cameroon by building a solar-powered irrigation system for a vegetable farm. This farm will provide the community with high quality vegetables to improve local living conditions.
We want to help internally displaced people in Cameroon by installing a solar powered well pump to deliver clean water to the community and a vegetable farm. This farm will provide their community with high quality vegetables and help them create a new livelihood.
The current situation
In Cameroon there is an armed conflict between the French-speaking majority and the English-speaking minority known as the “Anglophone crisis”. The conflict has been going on for two years and many people are forced to flee their homes to seek security and a better life.
For this reason, we – a group of students from Berlin and Cameroon – have jointly found solutions to improve the situation of internally displaced people.
Our goal is to provide clean water and an irrigation system for an organic vegetable farm that provides the community with food for consumption and creates a sustainable source of income for internally displaced people.
The entire system is maintained by the displaced families, who are trained to use the solar-powered pump system safely, efficiently and in the long term.
We at Greening Africa Together are a non-profit network of NGOs, universities and institutions that aim to encourage and support young people in the fight against climate change in order to create perspectives in Africa together.

Technical details & concept
We have already acquired a field of around 5000m² near Dschang, Cameroon. Our system is designed to supply 31m³ of water a day, which will be enough to grow tomatoes, corn, beans and cassava on the farm. The energy required is completely renewable and promises ZERO emissions operation, without additional costs.
