Rural water supply – Chad

According to the national Directorate of Hydraulics, only 30% of the rural areas have access to clean drinking water. The national standard is one well for 400 in habitants, but the average is more than 1’000 people for one water point. The project builds 50 boreholes equipped with VLOM hand pumps and advises the community on safe water supply management and water use. Each community establishes a water committee who supervises the water supply and the maintenance fund.
