Warka Pump

We have finally tested on-site, at the Warka Village, the new Warka pump after several tests at the DAB laboratory in Italy. The result has been positive and thanks to the cooperation between Warka Water Inc and DAB pumps we have it now running !. It is designed for water movement, and it is customized for the Warka Tower Filtration & Distribution system. It is a small element of a bigger ecosystem, but an important one for the achievement of our goal: to give access to potable water to remote communities not served yet by governmental infrastructures. This first prototype has been designed and implemented by the DAB Engineer office. The pump has several advantages: it is a low cost, small, simple to operate, simple to maintain and repair, it is solar-powered, light-weight, not noisy, and it is safe (it runs at low-voltage).

Objectives

Our priorities, in Cameroon, are to support the indigenous people and to restore the rainforest’s ecosystem. We are committed to supporting the Pygmies communities, giving them access to safe water, sanitation, etc. We aim to restore and safeguard the natural habitat where the Pygmies live, the Congo Basin rainforest that is devastated by deforestation. The two issues are strongly interconnected and we believe that we have to solve both to be successful in this big challenge.

The Warka Storage.

The Warka Storage is the common food storage space for the preservation of dry grains, roots, tubers, bananas, and plantains. At the core of the pavilion, there is a circular traditional earth grains storage constructed following the ancient techniques. Vegetable and crop production is seasonal, but food security depends on a regular and sustainable supply of food throughout the year. This is why an adequate crop and food system is needed to ensure equitable and adequate supplies to the villagers.

The Rainforest

Recently there has been an alarming rate of deforestation in the Congo Basin forest. Hundreds of hectares of forest are destroyed every year and converted into, Banana, Rubber, and Palm plantations by multinational companies. They exploit the trees, due to the economic value of the timber products, causing enormous damage in the wet tropical forest. The Congo Basin rainforest is the house of thousands of fauna and flora species and also the house of the Pygmy people. They have been the guardians of the rainforest for millennia and today they are disappearing as a culture because of the ongoing destruction of the habitat and this will be an unforgivable loss. As a consequence of the deforestation, many Pygmies communities have been forced to leave their traditional lands. They are today located on roadside settlements, facing discrimination and rejection due to their cultural and social difference.

Cameroon hosts part of the Congo Basin forest, which is the first-largest tropical rainforest worldwide, an area estimated at 22 million hectares, of which 14 million are a Tropical Rainforest. The forests have been home to Pygmies communities and also to many large mammal species (elephants, gorillas, and chimpanzees), as well as countless species of trees and plants of high medicinal and cultural value. It controls the climate and regulates stream flow and maintains rainfall of the area.

Natural rattan wall.

To construct the natural partition wall is a long working process: First, our team goes to the forest for the material harvesting. Rattan grows year-round and there are no harvesting seasons. Harvesting is difficult considering the inaccessibility of the deep rainforest. The first cut and strip the rattan of its thorny outer layer. Then we wash the rattan with water to clean the product and stripping away the layer of silica that tends to coat the core rattan. After that, the rattan will be dried to remove excess moisture under the hot equatorial sun for two or three days. The rattan is ready for use after drying. Then, the further process into peel for weaving. A partition like this takes 5 days for our craftsman to be viewed and one day to be mounted. Each Warka House has 2 internal partitions like this.

Natural Straw Ropes

We make our own customised ropes intertwining natural straw. One packet of straw makes an average of 5 cords (8 m long). For example we use 50 ropes, 8m in length, to fix the thatch straw roof on the Warka Pavilion’s, against the wind, this technique typical of the northern region of Cameroon. To weave a rope-like this, a person takes 3 hours. Hence in a day, you can do a maximum of 3 ropes. For our needs and to complete the job we consider a person full time for 4 weeks.

Adobe bricks are a fireproof, durable yet biodegradable, non-toxic building material that provides sufficient thermal mass to buildings to ensure excellent thermal performance. They are also low sound transmission levels through walls and a general feeling of solidity and security. Adobe is an excellent building material but unfortunately today it is out of fashion. It is eco-friendly 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. 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.

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.!!!
