Since 2006, Amman Imman has been working in the Tahoua region of Niger, and more specifically in the departments of Tchintabaradene and Abalak. We focus on the Azawak valley, covering an area over 80,000 square miles, with a population over 500,000 people. The dominant ethnic groups of the region are the Wodaabe Fulani and the Tuaregs. Thus far we have been responsible for five deep borehole-wells, providing over 100,000 people with access to clean and sustainable year-round water. Other projects conducted by Amman Imman, depending on the type of project, have supported over 15,000 people on a year-round basis.
Here are some figures, derived from our Health Impact Study, on the direct and indirect impact of access to water in our five existing sites, affecting 37 villages and around 40,000 people per year:
