These projects involves the drilling of boreholes equipped with solar powered pumps to pump and harvest water underground water and lift the water into an elevated storage reservoir. Before distribution to the population, the water would be treated to reduce the high level of fluoride in the water to acceptable levels. It is assumed that the high concentrations of phosphorus in surface water will be adsorbed by soil particles during infiltration and therefore the dissolved phosphorus in groundwater bodies will be minimal.
. This option will provide water throughout the year and will therefore be more economical in the long term. The water will. be tested and controlled to ensure its potability thus guaranteeing it’s healthy for domestic use especially when the dry season is at its peak (March, April, May). It is assumed that the high concentrations of phosphorus in surface waters will be absorbed by soil particles during infiltration and therefore the dissolved phosphorus in groundwater bodies will be minimal.at contains fluoride and contaminants.
As part of the sustainability element of the project, a nursery of Moringa tree will be established in the villages to reduce runoff and increase infiltration during the wet season. It is edible and it seeds will also be used for water purification. The most widely cultivated species is Moringa oleifera, a multipurpose tree cultivated throughout the tropics. It grows quickly in many types of environments, and much of the plant is edible, including by livestock. The leaves contain all essential amino acids and are rich in protein, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, and minerals. So it will help the villagers in gaining a balanced diet. Feeding the high protein leaves to cattle has been shown to increase weight gain by up to 32% and milk production by 43 to 65%. The seeds contain 30 to 40% oil that is high in oleic acid, while degreased meal is 61% protein. The defatted meal is a flocculent and can be used in water purification to settle out sediments and undesirable organisms.

Project Characteristics and Results
Capacity - Building Component
Dans la mise en oeuvre de ce projet le renforcement de capacité sera axé : les changements climatique, sur l’agro-Bio, dans les activités génératrices de revenus (AGR), l’éducation adulte. Effectifs des membres des groupes rencontrés - Djidel : 250 personnes - Messere : 150 personnes - Sedek : 200 personnes
Gender Focus
Environ 15 groupes mixte (hommes, femmes et jeunes) avec pour responsables les femmes répertorié, l’activité genre est sensible et se situe au niveau transversale par rapport aux activités du projet Même si les hommes sont au centre de la promotion des activités, les femmes doivent participer à la prise des décisions sur le plan environnemental, social économique et politique. A travers les fonds rotatifs, les femmes devront être capables d’acquérir des biens pour leur propre épanouissement.
