Warka Village

Work is well progressing here at the Warka Village. Currently at the construction site, we are undertaking several activities in parallel. Two carpenters are prefabricating the triangular structural lattice frames for the 6th Warka House. A team of seven people is dedicated to the landscaping and they are cleaning, excavating, and modeling the ground surface. Two more people are fully dedicated to the Warka Forest project and they are planting fruit trees in the Warka Village site. A group of four artisans are viewing the raffia leaves and the dry straw to make the panels and cables we need for the thatch roofs. We have four people in the forest searching for construction materials and six more are occupied for the transport of the harvested materials from the forest to the Warka Village.
Stay tuned we will keep you updated on the progress.!!!

Warka Tower 4.2

The stepped cylinder, the core of the Warka Tower 4.2, is under construction and it is made only by earth, water and straws. It is inspired by the northern Cameroonian traditional ancient construction techniques. Mud is an excellent building material but unfortunately today it is out of fashion. The walls are eco-friendly and economic, the only costs are in labor and time. Another advantage of building with earth is that the art-craft is a durable yet biodegradable, non-toxic building material. Moreover, no costly tools or equipment are necessary and the essential know-how can be easily acquired on a training workshop and through hands-on experiences
Warka Village will be entirely constructed with Mud, Wood, and Natural fibers.

Making Bricks

Mud is among the most popular building materials in many countries. Mud is plentiful and economic, and so is the sunshine used to dry mud bricks until they’re solid enough for construction. The only costs are in labor and time. It’s a relatively straightforward process that’s been employed with many variations since around 7000 B.C.
Ingredients:
Dirt
Sand
Straw, grass
Water
Sunlight
A mold to shape the bricks

Bake bricks in sunshine for five days

Deforestation

Cameroon counts 22 million hectares of tropical rainforests as a part of the Congo Basin forest ecosystem. It is a major hotspot of biodiversity and its house not only one of the oldest woodlands of the Earth but also a unique plant world. Rare drills and chimpanzees live in the region, as well as forest elephants, gorillas, and leopards. Many animal and plant species can be seen only here and nowhere else in the world.
But this could end soon, due to the growing threat posed by the foreign investment in mining, agriculture and associated infrastructure development.

Water Pavilion

The Adobe Cistern has been finally completed! This is the main element that constitutes the Water Pavilion that we will implement in the comings weeks. The Cistern was made only by local earth and water adopting the northern Cameroonian traditional ancient construction techniques. The advantage of building with earth is that the art-craft is a durable yet biodegradable, non-toxic building material that provides sufficient thermal mass to buildings to ensure excellent thermal performance.
No costly tools or equipment are necessary and the essential know-how can be easily acquired on a training workshop and through hands-on experiences. It took one person for 6 weeks to complete it.

Water Scarcity

The Pygmies communities today have lost access to clean water resulting in health issues such as cholera, diarrhea and stomach problems. They drink, cook, wash, go toilet, swim all in the same river water !!!! As diseases are spread through contaminated water, improving the quality of water will improve the quality of villagers' life and the economy of the community.

Hygiene & Sanitation

Handwashing can prevent the spread of disease. It has been considered a measure of personal hygiene for centuries and has been generally embedded in religious and cultural habits. Nevertheless, the link between handwashing and the spread of disease was established only two centuries ago. In developing countries, childhood mortality rates related to respiratory and diarrheal diseases can be reduced by introducing simple behavioral changes, such as handwashing with soap.

Recently there has been an alarming rate of deforestation in the Congo Basin, which is home to the second-largest tropical rainforest after the Amazon. The multinational companies of Timber products, Palm plantation, Rubber production, exploit the forest cutting trees, causing enormous damage in the wet tropical forest. This forest in addition to being considered as one of the big reservoirs of Africa, it is the shelter for the Pygmies.

Mud constructions offer great flexibility in the design. We are constructing the interior of the Warka Tower 4.1 using adobe bricks that are laid up into a wall using an earth mortar. Before drying out, the finished walls are smoothed down. A clay plaster will be applied as a surface coating. Earth buildings have a number of advantages and relatively few disadvantages. adobe bricks are a fireproof, durable yet biodegradable, non-toxic building material that provides sufficient thermal mass to buildings to ensure excellent thermal performance.

Pygmies lifestyle

Currently Pygmies culture and lifestyle are fast deteriorating,
the shelters they lives are made using inappropriate unsafe and toxic construction materials together with the lack of house hygiene the living environment has a negative health consequence with a high pygmies child mortality. They share the living space with the cattle that are exposed to epidemics, affecting the lives of the residents. A
simple communal shelter serves as a main camp for the villagers. When it rains, they stand all together in the driest corner of the house while they collect rain dropping from the ceiling with plastic basins and buckets to keep the bare dirt floor dry.
