Joint Action on Water-Environment-Education for Tomorrow

Context

In Togo, the national context is marked by poor access to the drinking water and sanitation infrastructure. The indicators for access and quality of basic education and literacy at the regional level are strongly influenced by these shortcomings. Thus, in the education sector, particularly in the Savannah region, only 12% of primary schools in the region have at least one water point and only 5% have a water point, latrines and hand-washing facilities. The gender parity index of the primary school access rate is 0.94 and can be explained, in part, by the socio-cultural context and the domestic work assigned to girls, including that of fetching water.

Project objective

Contribute to the improvement of the living environment of the inhabitants of 2 communes of the prefecture of Cinkassé, located in the Savannah region, through the education of children, young people and women.
