Tigray is one of the regions of Ethiopia with very low level of economic and social infrastructures. The region is facing variety of complex problems ranging from the climatic and topographic conditions to the alarming population growth. Chronic food insecurity, high unemployment rate, malnutrition, limited access to basic social and economic services (education, health, water, road etc) are the common features of the region.
This project presently under progress of execution by CISP is expected to reduce the potable water burden of Endabaguna town due to consistent presence of approx. 4.000 Eritrean refugees and is intended to improve the drinking water access in the town.
The project will be further technically supported as well as by Butterfy Onlus Foundation and Sermig based in Turin thanks to their financial contribution.
A 150 meters deep water well will be drilled while the water will be connected through 1.300 meters long piping to a 100 cubic meters tank. Additional piping will connect the tank outlet to the existing town water network .
The concerned area is particularly dry and hot, and the water availability is not enough to cover the needs of the 30.000 inhabitants.
At the “Endabaguna screening centre” which hosts more than 2.000 refugees (of which 30% are unaccompanied children) for a period of three months approx, the water supply is limited and presently made available through military tankers trucks support.
