The sustainable use of the wells after the end of the project will be ensured through the establishment of so-called Water Committees, composed of five people, including three community representatives, one local representative of the National Rural Development Agency and one local representative of Coton Tchad. These committees are responsible for the management and maintenance of the wells based on a fund composed of small contributions from the beneficiary communities.
The population did not have adequate access to drinking water and residents had to travel up to 15 km to access clean drinking water. In the community of Borom II, there was already a water connection, but the pump had not been functioning for five years.
The cotton company Coton Tchad therefore submitted an application to drill two new wells and repair the existing broken pump. In addition, WASH (Water, Sanitation & Hygiene) trainings were planned to sensitize the population on waterborne diseases, hygiene and good sanitation practices.
