Experts-Solidaires is partnering with the Yaongo Village Development Association (ADVY) to set up a drinking water and irrigation network in the village of Yaongo, in the commune of Dargo, in the North East of Ouagadougou. The project aims to improve access to drinking water and irrigation water for the 2,800 inhabitants of Yaongo with the objective of improving their health, reducing the hardship associated with water, developing the economy by improving agricultural water management. Three components will be addressed:
