Provision of NLONG village with potable water by constructing a well equipped with a manual pump.
The beneficiaries of the project are the populations of NLONG village who are about 500 persons. It is worth noting that women and children are the direct beneficiaries of the project.
The population has put a piece of land at the disposal of the project, indicating where it has to be realized.
They also offered sand for the masonry, manpower to dig the well, as well as an expert to install the pump.
