The forest is a biotope that our planet can simply not do without. In the following year, let's reforest 50 hectares of forest together. The misty mountain forest in Cameroon is not only home to dozens of endangered organisms including the rarest subspecies of chimpanzee, Pan troglodytes ellioti, it is also the only and most important source of water for the vast region of Bamenda Highlands.

Every tree counts!

Project Description

WHY? We can’t live without water. Neither can the people of Kedjom-Keku. Meanwhile, they are destroying their only source of it – the misty mountain forest. Today there is just under two percent left of it. Which is why in the past decade the climatic conditions in the area have dramatically changed and water level in rivers has dropped.

HOW? In order to put a stop to this undesired change, we plant trees to reforest old farms and pastures. We believe that with new forest the water will soon return to the mountains in full strength.

Every year Water for Cameroon is topped off with a nationwide event, where for a given time up to a hundred cafes, bars and restaurants in Czech Republic serve tap water, a litre for twenty crowns. Thus our motto, a litre for twenty, twenty for a tree!

For every twenty crowns we earn we plant one tree, which we then take care of for about five years. Find out more about Water for Cameroon at our Facebook event Water for Cameroon 2016.

OUR ACHIEVEMENTS! Finding a seed, allowing it to germinate, taking care of it for a year or two, finding the right place for planting it and ensuring its long future is not easy. Even so we have managed to successfully plant a thousand trees that continue to thrive.

In the following year of 2016 we plan on reforesting up to fifty hectares of deforested land in the hilly region of Abongphen –this means 50 000 new trees. We want to focus particularly on areas around the river sources and forest corridors that connect the last fragments of the indigenous forest, to not only renew the local source of water, but to also give endangered forest inhabitants a better place to live.

SOME HISTORY…
