My name is Peter Njodzeka, a Cameroonian nationality, I am a founder/president of an NGO called, Life and Water Development Group that has been working on health issues and clean drinking water issues. My affiliates are Hope College from Holland, Michigan USA, a chapter of Engineers Without Borders from the USA and we implemented a water project already in the village of Nkuv, some few kilometers after Banso town. Our major problem is the health section now because my affiliates are engineers and do not work much on health, though we had two health engineers when the team was coming in May, and they did very well teaching the villagers. In March 2006, 5 engineers travelled to Cameroon to work with my NGO for site assessment and in May, the team returned with a huge number of 11 engineers for the implementation of the shallow well, biosand filters and health and sanitation projects, which was a success though the shallow wells did not bear fruits. So we still have a problem of health and sanitation and I'm writing here to know if there is a way for Peace Corps volunteers to visit this community and see what they can do to them by improving their standard of leaving. You can visit our website at: or email me at: and copy cc to or call +237 771 62 88 for more information. If you visit our website and it's not going through, please be patient as we are still working on it putting more information.

The entire community will be very grateful having peace corps around them.

Please do let me know how we can work together in building a better world.

Sincerely yours

Peter NJodzeka
