It embodies the restoration of dignity, health, and hope for the community. In Umuaka, where the struggle for clean water has been a persistent battle, Emelong Foundation has become a symbol of empowerment.

The impact is profound. Children can attend school without the shackles of water-related illnesses. Families can embrace healthier lives. And the community as a whole witnesses the dawn of a brighter future. Emelong Foundation’s dedication to sustainable solutions brings not only clean water but also a renewed sense of possibility and potential.

Access to clean and reliable water is a fundamental human right, yet countless communities across the globe continue to struggle with water scarcity. Emelong Foundation e.V. has emerged as a beacon of hope, leading the charge in providing sustainable solutions to address this pressing issue. Through its pioneering water borehole projects, the foundation has embarked on a journey of transformation, creating lasting change in the lives of communities in need. Especially in Umuaka where the issue of clean water has been a pressing need.

That's where we stand

The successful installation of clean drinking water by Emelong Foundation e.V. marks a pivotal achievement in the ongoing efforts to combat water scarcity. This accomplishment stands as a beacon of hope, bringing about transformative and positive changes in the lives of the students at Riverside Primary School, Isiozi Umuaka.

The availability of clean drinking water has effectively tackled the challenges posed by water scarcity, offering a lifeline to the school community. This achievement extends far beyond mere convenience; it influences the overall well-being and health of the students. With a consistent supply of clean water, the students’ hydration needs are met, ensuring their physical well-being and contributing to their ability to focus and engage effectively in their studies.

However, it’s important to note that the impact of Emelong Foundation’s initiatives goes beyond water access alone. The successful installation of the solar system ensures a steady supply of electricity, a factor that synergistically supports the water supply efforts. The availability of constant electricity directly influences the operation of the water borehole, ensuring that the water supply remains uninterrupted and reliable.

This dual achievement—clean water access and steady electricity—forms a powerful synergy that enhances the quality of life for the students, teachers, and the broader community. It transforms Riverside Primary School into a hub of learning, health, and progress. The ripple effect extends not only within the school walls but also into the homes and lives of every individual touched by these improvements.

As we celebrate these milestones, we recognize Emelong Foundation e.V.’s unwavering dedication to fostering sustainable change. By addressing essential needs like clean water and reliable electricity, the foundation is contributing to a brighter future for the students of Riverside Primary School and their community. The path ahead is one of continued progress, empowerment, and the unwavering commitment to creating positive change where it’s needed most.

That's what we still need to accomplish

Amid the significant progress achieved, Emelong Foundation e.V. remains steadfast in its commitment to creating enduring positive change within the community. The foundation’s accomplishments, including the installation of clean water access and a steady electricity supply, are just stepping stones on a path of continuous improvement and empowerment.

With a vision for a more sustainable and transformed community, Emelong Foundation seeks to expand its impact further. The foundation aspires to extend its reach through additional water borehole projects, aimed at providing clean water access to more areas within the community. However, for these ambitions to materialize, financial support is paramount. The foundation recognizes the value of collaboration and partnerships to make these initiatives possible.

As the foundation looks ahead, several key areas emerge as priorities:

1. Maintenance and Sustainability: While initial achievements have been notable, the maintenance of the water borehole equipment and water pipes is essential to ensure the continued functionality of these systems. Regular upkeep and repair work will guarantee the longevity of the infrastructure and the uninterrupted supply of clean water.

2. Comprehensive Water Access: The desire to extend water access to every corner of the school building reflects a commitment to inclusivity. The plan to extend water pipes to all blocks of the school premises is pivotal in providing equal access to clean water for all students, teachers, and staff. This comprehensive approach ensures that no area is left behind.


As Emelong Foundation e.V. continues its journey, it carries forward the spirit of positive change and empowerment. The foundation’s commitment to enhancing the lives of students, families, and the community at large is an inspiration to all who believe in the transformative power of collective action. Through collaboration, innovation, and unyielding determination, Emelong Foundation is creating a legacy of progress that will resonate for generations to come.
