The situation

In Sinikosson Community, in the Man region in Cotê d’Ivoire 1,300 people are depending on 3 hand dug wells in the community. During the dry season, from December to March, the wells runs dry and the villagers must walk 3 km. to the nearest water source, a river with unclean water. During these months they use the river water for drinking and domestic use, which makes them sick.

The solution

For 7,950 US$ A local entrepreneur will drill a borehole and install a solar powered water pump and a water tower with a 2,000 liter tank, to provide sufficient clean ground water for approximately 1.300 people all year round.
