WATER IS LIFE - BENIN


Fight against climate change preserves resources, such as water. In Benin, 45% of the population does not have access to water: the lack of water affects people life, forcing them to move to find this vital resource.

With CARE France, Concorde Hotels & Resorts is committed to provide sustainable access to safe water for more than 100.000 people including more than 30 schools.

Populations:
  • 10 districts of Ouemé and Borgou departments
  • 114.560 affected people
  • 80 villages, 32 schools and 10 health centers
Objective :
  • Set up and train water points management committees
  • Carry out 122 new drillings in the communities, schools and health centers, and rehabilitate 30 of them
  • Train and sensitize women, pupils, users and personnel of health centers and their communities to hygiene best practices and good management of the resource
  • Celebrate water day and organize a contest: « Clean Villages »
Project duration: 5 years
