Our activities started in 2010 with the  " Inventory-Diagnostic Repairs " project in the Oriental Logone region of southern Chad which was thenextended in 2012 to the Logone Occidental. This project made it possible to evaluate the general condition of water supplies to communities in these regions  and to assess the means required to achieve our aims.

To this day (March 2019)

  • 2022 Water access points have been  inventoried

  • 2090 diagnoses have been performed on 866 pumps  that were out of order

  • 1274   repairs have been completed on 550 pumps  

  • 696   Water Management Committees (COGPE) have been established.

  • In 2010, 60% of the water access points were found to be out of order. Today, for those communities that have a COGPE in place for over a year, 22% are out of order.

  • Beneficiaries: approximately 500,000 villagers
