Water tank in Possotome – 2009

LoveSpring’s first implemented water project was the construction of a water tank in Possotome in the Mono Province of Benin, Western Africa. LoveSpring financed the water tank for the village’s nursery school. In Benin, poor hygiene and contaminated water contributes to high rates of infant mortality and poor health conditions. So, in order to ensure that the drinking water in Possotome remained clean and encapsulated, a closed water tank where reign water could be gathered in protection from contamination was constructed.
