H2Os - the right to water / A community house in Senegal

The water crisis is a largely silent crisis.
Every year, some 3.4 million people die from diseases associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene.
H2Os is a participatory process, promoted by an association of Senegalese immigrants in Italy, to design eco-houses to be realized in the rural area of Keur Bakar, Senegal.
H2Os prototype is a community house, that can harvest and store water supplies for all domestic uses (drinking, cooking, washing, irrigation)
The knowledge gathered will be shared in the form of oper source to promote eco-villages in the remote area of Senegal with the goal of an african way to a new ecology.
