Water is Life: the construction and safety of wells in Madagascar

Most of the local populations of Madagascar do not yet have direct access to drinking water, the correct and safe management of water resources can improve the hygiene, social and economic conditions of the population and contribute to sustainable development.

Carbonsink in collaboration with Aid4Mada ONLUS, an NGO that develops and implements international cooperation projects for the poorest populations of Madagascar; since 2015 it has been present in Tulear, the poorest city in all of Madagascar, to improve the living conditions of the population.

The project plans to provide safe and safe water to families living around the city of Tulear, Madagascar. In some areas, still today, many families do not have direct access to drinking water and are forced to face long daily trips to reach water sources in semi-desert areas. In the Tulear area in particular, over 80% of the population does not have access to drinking water.

The main aim of the project is to improve the hygienic, social and economic conditions of the local population thanks to a correct and safe management of the water resource, guaranteeing - at the same time - the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions generated by the combustion of wood, used to sterilize well water. Alongside the structural interventions, initiatives will be implemented to sensitize the population on a correct and safe management of the water resource.
