The open air festival which was tipped to be attended by over 12 000 visitors, mostly from the local neighbourhood, was a culmination of a week long programme of events to commemorate 150 years since the world’s largest chemical company was founded.
As part of the show, a short slot was allocated to acknowledge the winners of “Connected to Care”, an initiative supporting voluntary and not-for-profit organisations. Earlier this year Westkam was awarded €5000 through this scheme, which it will use to build a solar well in the village of Bakoko.
Westkam member, Deniz Akyol, who initiated the application to the scheme was presented with a small gift and official certificate. The building work on the well in Bakoko will begin in the dry season in West Cameroon, which is from January to March 2016.
