Integrated project for the provision of basic social services and community mobilisation at state primary schools (Ivory Coast)




Improving living conditions in the village of Tilbonindouo

The project aims to improve living conditions, particularly access to education, health and drinking water, for the inhabitants of the village of Tilbonindouo. Located 115 kilometres from Bondoukou, Tilbonindouo has just one community school, consisting of 3 very dilapidated classrooms. They have no electricity, water or latrines, which poses serious problems in terms of pupil reception conditions and the quality of teaching. The village, which has a population of 2,000, has no health centre or dispensary.
