Togo: 1,639 boreholes will be rehabilitated, starting this month

(Togo First) - All over the country, 1,639 damaged boreholes equipped with manual pumps, will be rehabilitated, starting this month. The announcement comes from the ministry of water, rural equipment and hydraulics (MEERHV).

The boreholes were identified during an assessment of boreholes and small scale systems for drinking water distribution in rural and semi-urban areas.

Rehabilitation of the boreholes, according to the minister of water, should improve the lives of rural people by improving their access to drinking water. It falls under the Vulnerable Populations Support Program (PAPV), under its ‘Water and Sanitization’ segment.

Still, to improve populations’ living standards, Togolese public authorities created a mobile platform enabling them to have continuous access to drinking water. The initiative falls in the framework of the SOFIE project (Project for the Monitoring of Boreholes and Water Indicators).

In 2017, let’s recall, 1,559 boreholes were rehabilitated.
