Following the request of the inhabitants of Gbenokpo and the Benin AJEDD association, we undertook the study of a borehole at the village school. A technical feasibility study is carried out to ensure the presence of water in the field and the different strata to be crossed during drilling. At the end of the installation, a Village Water Committee will be in charge of managing and maintaining the project. The water will be sold at a low price to the population and will remain free for the public school. An educational vegetable garden will be set up by our Benedict partner AJEDD.
The drilling is finished, the water goes up for 58 meters, the analyzes are in progress.
