AFD donates €10 million to Togo to improve access to drinking water

(Togo First) - Togo just received €10 million (XOF6.5 billion) to build and rehabilitate infrastructures that supply drinking water, in line with its PASCOO project. The latter aims at improving sanitary conditions in rural areas and schools across the country. 

The donation made by the French Development Agency (AFD) will be dedicated to the Savanes and Kara regions. The related agreement was inked on July 16, 2020, between the Togolese minister of economy and finance, Sani Yaya, and Marc Vizy, France’s ambassador to Togo. 

In detail, the money will be used to “set up 400 new boreholes with manual pumps, rehabilitate 200 old ones, and build 200 public latrines,” said the minister before adding that the financing “will help implement priorities set under the third axis of the national development plan (PND 2018-2022) which focuses on enhancing social development and inclusion mechanisms.” 

Let’s recall that the PASCOO has already enabled the construction of 344 manual boreholes and 100 public latrines, and the rehabilitation of 136 broken boreholes in the Savanes region.
