About Temin, Aboisso.
Temin, located in the region of Aboisso the main city in that region. Located in the South-East of the country, this village is 106 (sixty) KM far from Abidjan the capital city of Ivory Coast. In fact, with over 2000 inhabitants, all these people fight every day before getting water.

Why Temin, Aboisson?
Access to clean water is one of the major challenges the population is undergoing. Therefore, finding solution to this problem will not only solve the problem of access to water, but it will also solve the problem of health, sanitation and hygiene, it will also build a new generation with strong health, and without diseases related to water infection.
We aim then to build in the village of Akradio a well, that will help alleviate the water crisis the community of Temin is facing. With access to clean water, the community will spend less time walking to fetch water and their reliance on lake water during dry season will not be necessary anymore. It will make for a healthier village.
