Making a world of difference through
Providing Access to Clean Water
We consider clean drinking water to be a human right. The challenge of access to clean water is an environmental theme that we continue to educate youth about. After learning about this growing global issue, and a deepened compassion for those in need, we wanted to create the opportunity for compassionate action, and create a pathway for meaningful impact.
We decided it was time to collaborate with these communities, and make a difference- giving them room to grow through the upgrading of computer labs and helping complete construction of classrooms.
We have identified two villages in the Volta Region, where we work, which have over 1,2000 residents combined. Many pervious models have been unsuccessful in getting clean water, including a bored hole that pumped brackish water unsafe to drink. In the fall of 2017, water filters were shared with families providing a temporary solution. We have begun a cross-cultural, multi-discipline collaboration for a long-term solution: piping water in to a single gathering spot in two villages.
Phase 1 - water filters
We met our $2,500 goal
Bore Hole pump
Installing a pump on the bore hole at E.P. Primary Ho-Bankoe, will bring water to 565 students and their teachers. Goal: $1,000
Phase 2 - Pipeline to Dorkplorame
This pipeline will provide 550 people with clean water at just $20 per person for polytank, PVC pipes and installation. Goal: $11,800
