Providing safe drinking water in Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso is facing droughts. The lack of water is creating a competition around the water points that brings conflict within communities. Women and children are the most affected, they spend a lot of time fetching water. The mortality among children under five is high.

Building 25 boreholes in communities where safe drinking water will:

  • compensate the inadequacy of drinking water points
  • diminish the loss of time in the search for drinking water by women
  • compensate for the lack of access to drinking water by some communities
  • minimize conflicts between breeders and farmers
  • create Income Generation Activities through the proceeds of the sale of water
