The villages are located in the commune of Itsahidi, which is situated in the southeast of the island of Grande Comore, in the region of Mbadjini Est. The island of Grande Comore does not have a collective drinking water network, and the rate of access to water is 12%. The population is subject to water shortages and waterborne diseases. The project is located in a rural area where water stress is particularly high. The two villages were dependent on the ONU 03 well which is currently inoperable because it is highly contaminated, too salty, and the pump no longer works. Thus the two villages are in lack of water.
