Clean Water For All
A new resource in the Kpatabonou Village.
In 2018, the Kpatabonou Village, in the Oumé section of Côte d’Ivoire, completely renovated its water pump with Community Development Funds received through the local cooperatives' partnerships with Fair Trade USA.
"Before the renovation women had to walk really far to get water. It was dirty and unsafe," says Michel Yao Kouassi, Chief of the village. "Now, the water pump area is clean, efficient, and safer for our community to use."
