Context

The island of Agonvé is surrounded by the waters of Lake Azili 150 km from Cotonou. The entire population gets their daily water supply from this lake. This is unfit for human consumption and causes many health problems including diarrheal diseases.

It is within this framework that the Raoul Follereau Foundation and the Safe Water Cube endowment fund / Association Agir Ensemble have teamed up to provide two Safe Water Cube fountains in this village.
