Summary

Improve health and reduce poverty levels in sixteen communities by constructing 20 hand-dug wells fitted with pumps, and to build four KVIP toilets in schools to improve sanitation and reduce disease in Twifu.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The main problem of the identified project communities is poor health of the people. In the absence of portable water supply and sanitation facilities in the project communities, the rate of death associated with the ten most common diseases, which are preventable, has increased steadily in the last five years. Infant mortality rate is presently high. Seven out of every ten deaths result from diseases such as Malaria, Severe Diarrhoea and Upper Respiratory Track infection.

How will this project solve this problem?

To solve the present problems, the proposed project's main goal is to increase health awareness on personal hygiene and environmental cleanliness, including other preventable diseases through public education in the sixteen identified project communities.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will improve the quality of life for people, and reduce poverty, morbidity and medical expenses. Clean water will be made available, as well as good hygiene awareness to 5000 people of the project communities.
