projects in progress

The drinking water projects that we currently carry out with local populations improve the health and hygiene of all. They allow communities to work together, men and women, for a common good, drinking water. Women and girls no longer have to deal with the chore of fetching water. In each village, a drinking water committee composed of at least 50% women is elected and operators are trained to ensure the good management and sustainability of the project. By actively participating in the projects, the farmers strengthen their self-esteem and are ready to take on new challenges.
