This project empowers people through access to clean drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene.
It is about providing a continuous and reliable supply of clean drinking water and full cycle sanitation systems to thousands of people, living in 62 remote villages throughout Angola.
Owini, the water project unit of the Mitrelli Group, designed each water network in accordance with each village’s individual water source and landscape. The infrastructure included borehole wells, pumps, water towers and pipes leading to the village. Facilities such as fountains, taps, basins, laundry tubs and sewage control systems have been installed to meet the needs. Also incorporated into the project was a training program, teaching the local population how to properly use the water systems and of the importance of hygiene.
This 95 million $ project was financed by Israeli Bank Leumi, following an exclusive credit risk guarantee by Ashra, the Israeli export credit agency (ECA). Thus, with an agreement to promote Israeli water systems and technology export, Angolan Government enjoys an A+ rating term funding, to be paid over 10 years.
