Monaco Red Cross water project in Burkina Faso


The project is being implemented in Koutougou and Arbinda townships, Soum province, Burkina Faso, in the Sahel region.

We funded this project to improve access to clean Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (Wash) in north of Burkina Faso.

The specific aims are:

– To ensure a proper and sustainable access to safe drinking water and latrines.

– To improve basic knowledge about personal hygiene, water management and waterborne diseases.


The Results

From November 2013 to September 2014 (works on field started in the beginning of 2014), 50 latrines will be constructed and boreholes will be rehabilitated.

The population will be trained in personal hygiene, water management, and sanitation.

Around 300 people will be helped through the project, representing at least 50 of the most vulnerable families already benefitting from a wider Red Cross food security project.

To be efficient, the project has to tackle three equally important issues linked to each other: 

Water: focus on providing access to water for the population.

Hygiene: focus on improving awareness of personal hygiene and water management (especially to avoid the contamination of drinking water by themselves).

Sanitation: focus on excreta management and waste management. In order to ensure sustainability, MRC and BFRC will focus on strengthening water management committees to enforce their capacity and knowledge and ensure long term maintenance.
