Let us note in passing that the reduction of urban poverty called “PREPUD Quartier 7” is financed by the World Bank.
It includes works and activities that aim to improve the quality of life of 5,000 households in this neighborhood by rehabilitating roads, setting up literacy and vocational training Women and youth, and improving the level of efficiency of sanitation and garbage collection.
As part of this project, a number of facilities have been built in Ward 7, including a community development center, a health center and a recreation area.
