Solar drinking water supply in Togo

Water sources in Togo are rare, mostly unreliable, polluted and far away, especially in the dry season and due to the growing population. So-called “water kiosks” supply the population 24/7 with up to 1,000 liters of safe drinking water per hour. Thanks to our support, such a solar-based drinking water supply system provides 910 pupils and 15 teachers with access to 5 liters of clean drinking water per person per day for a year.

The project thus contributes to equitable access to affordable clean drinking water and replaces the boiling of water with firewood or charcoal with solar water treatment systems.
