The OK Clean Water Project began in 2003 as a partnership between two groups of people – one in Ottawa, Canada, and one in Kumbo, Cameroon, Africa. Of the 21 families living there, 11 had no access to potable water and had to rely on a polluted stream or walk long distances for water. The Ottawa group responded by raising $3,000 to help these 11 families. And thus the Ottawa-Kumbo partnership was born and was named “OK Clean Water Project”.
