About the project

AFRIKANET is pleased to cooperate with DECLOG! This commission of African Union has chosen to use the VSAT solution (Very Small Aperture Terminal). With this equipment DECLOG make sure to meet the needs of its telecommunication.

DECLOG is a commission of African Union which is a continental union consisting of 54 countries in Africa. The only African state that is not a member is Morocco. The African Union was established on 26 May 2001 in Addis Ababa and launched on 9 July 2002 in South Africa, with the aim of replacing the Organisation of African Unity (OAU). The Assembly is chaired by Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe. Member states of the African Union cover almost the entirety of continental Africa and several off-shore islands. Consequently, the geography of the African Union is wildly diverse, including the world’s largest hot desert (the Sahara), huge jungles and savannahs, and the world’s longest river (the Nile). The vision of the African Union is that of: “An integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in global arena.”

  • About the Fondation Saint Martin

As a sign of international solidarity, Alfred Müller AG (which is based in Baar, canton of Zug) established the Fondation Saint Martin in 1992. With a foundation capital of 2.5 million Swiss francs, it forms the basis for the financing of the «Water is Life» project. It is subject to supervision by the Swiss federal government. Its declared objective is to support solidarity projects, and it can be active throughout the world. Its current priority is the «Water is Life» drinking water project in Cameroon.

The «Water is Life» project

The «Water is Life» project is the result of an initiative on the part of Urs Egli, a Benedictine priest from Engelberg, who as head of the Catholic Mission in Otélé, southern Cameroon, found himself confronted with a high infant mortality rate and a population that was in very poor health.

The project originally set out to build 44 wells, but this number soon increased to 400, and in the meantime it has surpassed 1,350. In order to ensure a sustainable supply of drinking water, the St. Martin Foundation attaches a great deal of importance to the maintenance of wells, but it is also constantly pushing ahead with the construction of new ones.
