Tapping to a better future: Clean water for rural Senegal

Senegal, Sub-Saharan Africa

The project, which was supported by the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), constructed boreholes, water treatment and storage infrastructure, and distribution pipes across the Thies and Fatick districts of Senegal. This has brought clean, safe water to hundreds of remote villages, where previously people were forced to use dirty, salty water drawn from wells.

Success Factors include a change of approach, an inclusive process, private sector involvement, and strong partnerships.
