Kumba, Cameroon

Joe and Adam traveled to Mbo Barombi, Cameroon to work on the route planning and site survey for a proposed roadway to connect the isolated village to the town across the lake. They also chose to review the water catchment which was installed by the ETHOS Center in 2008 and updated in 2013.

Joseph Bena and Adam Puccetti traveled to Mbo Barombi, Cameroon to work on the route planning and site survey for a proposed roadway to connect the isolated village to the town across the lake. The team worked independently under Cameroon Football Development Program, which empowers local youth through soccer matches and camps. The team also worked with the village to select the most effective route which connects to Kumba via the Lake Junction Road. With this roadway complete, the people of Mbo Barombi will be able to easily access the village and transport their crops to the market to sell.

Student experiences

"Completing my ETHOS Immersion really allowed me to grow as an engineer and as a person. I gained many skills over those 10 weeks but most importantly I learned how to interact with people of many different backgrounds/personalities and how to function in an unfamiliar environment. I'm sure that these experiences will help me a great deal once I begin working full-time next year." – Adam Pucetti, 2016 ETHOS Participant 

“Over the past two summers while I was participating in ETHOS in Malawi and Cameroon, I have truly changed as a person.  I developed relationships with people from all over and had the chance to become immersed in multiple cultures.  This program has allowed me to take the skills I learned in the classroom and my practical knowledge to help other communities enrich their lives.” – Joe Bena, 2016 ETHOS Participant
