Drinking water access for school children and the population in the cocoa growing area Soubré, Côte d'Ivoire

West of the town of Soubré lies the village of Zougou Kouassiko, surrounded by cocoa plantations. The Ivory Coast currently produces almost two million tons of cocoa a year. The independent non-profit Caboz Action organizes social projects, educational projects or clean drinking water projects to improve farmers' living conditions.

Together with aqua pura, Caboz Action has realized a second project for the production of bacteriological clean drinking water from rainwater for the schoolhouse and the village Zougou Kouassiko. The primary school of Zougou Kouassiko comprises 238 pupils. They are almost exclusively children of cocoa farming families.
