Programs

ADI's main foci are Project RISE (Rural Irrigation System for Ekumdipe) and ACWA (Access to Clean Water for Agyementi. RISE enables citizens of Ekumpdipe, Ghana to farm even during the dry season through the implementation of an irrigation system. Project ACWA provides clean water and improves the sanitation situation in Agyemanti, Ghana, by installing household latrines and boreholes fitted with handpumps. Our projects use local products and professionals, and involve the entire community.
