    Project history :
    The communities are spread over 7 different areas. The project consists of harnessing 7 water sources at an altitude of approximately 1,500 m. Seven reservoirs will be built (4, 5 or 10 m3 according to location) to supply around 20 water points. The entire installation will be linked by a network of 3,000 m transport pipes and 2,500 m supply pipes. Each water point will be overseen by a woman responsible for its maintenance. The necessary training for this task is part of the project.
