Have clean water

We used to drink dirty water from the river and wash our agricultural products “Cassava” with it. We experienced numerous health problems.

OFED built a manual water well and now we have drinking water. OFED also provided us with processing equipment and a storage unit. We now can process the whole cassava root quickly and produce in large quantities and safely store it. With the increased revenues, we are financially autonomous and can take care of our children.

Thank you OFED for your concerns for our cooperative and the well-being of our people.

Secretary, Cooperative of Djogbodji (Republic of Togo)
