Though donations we are receiving are still low, we have worked hard with the project communities to move our project forward. Our effort in the last three months was aimed at completing two outstanding Hand Dug Wells as indicated in our last report. These efforts and donations received in the last quarter enable us to buy one hand pump, which was used to fix and complete the Well at Odumasi community, where clean water is now being accessed by the 300 population of the community. The entire community members including children are so thrilled about the completion of the Hand Dug Well. They are very grateful to TRYAWCO and people who donated to make this possible. The community members including Yaa Bonsu (not real name) believes her life and those of her 7 children will not remain the same.
Presently we shall need more donations to buy at least 5 hand pumps to complete the outstanding Well at Zakari community as well as the 4 new ones almost ready for completion before close of 2013. Kofi Minta (not real name) who is a member of the Zakari community is very eager to see this happen before end of year.
We are now on Globalgiving UK and this was made possible by Helen Denyer during a visit to our project on 5-9 August 2013. We therefore hope donors in UK would see our project and donate generously to help us achieve the aims and objectives of our project.
We have worked had since the beginning of this project to ensure that our targeted communities get access to clean water through your donations. And as you may be aware, donations we are receiving in the past 18 months in not marching the demand of service we are providing to project communities.
As indicated in our last report, we completed one of the three outstanding Wells ready for completion leaving two more to be completed. Yaa Bonsu a mother of 7 children and Kofi Minta a father of 11 children from these two communities Odumase and Zakari respectively are eager to see that pumps are fitted on the two Hand Dug Wells to enable them have access to clean water. Within the past 12 months there have been many follow-up visits by members of these communities including Yaa Bonsu and Kofi Minta to our office, appealing for the completion of the outstanding Wells. Though work on new Wells has advanced in the past three months our appeal for donation is to help us complete the two outstanding Hand Dug Wells in the short term.
Out of the three outstanding wells ready for completion, one of them was completed and fitted with a pump early this month. The completed well is now benefiting the people of Agya-Atta community with a population of about 250 people. Whiles we are waiting for donations to procure pumps to complete the other two outstanding wells yet to be fitted with pumps, work on two new wells has started. This means we have started the excavation work on the new wells with the support of the new project communities.
As you may be aware, our project communities are mostly in the hinterland, which are not easily accessible by trucks and cars. The people in these communities produce the bulk of the food and the cash crops for the economy of our project district. However, they lack access to clean water and other amenities that can promote good health. The hand dug wells we are providing with your donations is now making a great impact in the lives of the people. Kumah Dogbe a farmer with two wife’s and 9 children in Agya-Atta community is too happy for the hand dug well, which has been completed for his community. According to him, the provision of the hand dug well has come as a big relief to him and other members of the community, which he believe would go a long way to improve their health. There are many people like Kumah Dogbe in other communities who need access to clean water and this can only be possible with your generosity by donating to this project.
We greet all of you once again and want tothank you for your continuous support to our project. As indicated in ourprevious reports, we have completed the major works on the new wells underconstruction since the beginning of the year 2012. Presently we need the hand pumpsto complete the wells before the dry season sets in by the close of December2012. This will bring the total number of wells completed to 10 with funds receivedfrom our donors from the begining of the project and if these three new wells are completed in addition, theywill benefit a total number of 2500 people from targeted project communities. JanetBoateng a mother of 7 children who comes from one of the new projectcommunities is very anxious to see work on the wells we are providing to their communitycompleted within this dry season. This is to avoid the hardships she goesthrough with her children around this time of the year with regards toaccessibility to clean water.
We are therefore appealing to our cherishdonors to donate towards the purchase of the pumps to enable us complete thethree wells for the targeted 750 people to benefit.

Greetings to all our cherish donors, we want to thank you all once again for helping us to provide clean water to our people. We have progressed steadily with funds received so far and out of this, another well has been completed within the last quarter. This has actually bring the total number of completed wells to seven (7), which is currently benefiting about 1,800 people in our project area. Our expectation from the beginning of the year was to receive donations to procure four (4) pumps to complete the new wells that were under construction from September last year. However, this has not been so but we still require three (3) hand pumps to complete the three outstanding wells, which needs only the pumps to complete to enable the target communities to have access to clean water. We are therefore appealing to all of you and friends to donate generously to help us procure the remaining three (3) hand pumps to complete the wells before end of 2012.
