Construction of suitable houses and solar panels enabling renewable energy to be generated
Introduction (Problem): Housing is a priority social need. However, for much of the population in the Sahel, housing is often precarious or even inaccessible. Poverty, population growth and the disappearance of wood resources used in traditional architecture deprive millions of families of access to decent housing.
For their housing, these families have no choice but to resort to their low budgets reserved for health, food and education to be able to buy imported roofs made of sheet metal, which are therefore very expensive yet largely inadequate.
Budget: 24,731,460 XOF
Implementation (solution): Through this project we have built houses for 8 complete families who will start working soon on ETS Elhadji Soumaila Hatimou’s farms. Solar panels have also been installed to generate clean energy for these households, thereby reducing the use of fossil energies from diesel generators.
