Challenge

There are thousands of vulnerable children, women and people with disabilities who do not have access to clean drinking water in some deprived communities in Ghana. These communities mainly rely on contaminated river and lagoon waters for survivor. High rate of child mortality is recorded in these communities since children are exposed to water borne diseases such as cholera, typhoid fever and dysentery which in most cases cause their lives. Children dropout of school due to lack of water.

Solution

This project will provide clean drinking water to vulnerable children, women and people with disabilities and will ensure availability of water at the vantage point within the communities which will be accessible to all. This project will save hours children and women spend on daily basis to provide water for their families. It will eradicate the child mortality rate since children will now have to consume clean drinking water. School dropout among children will also be ameliorated.

Long-Term Impact

The project will improve good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality among 900,000 children, women and people with disabilities within the marginalized communities. This will help reduce poverty among families since they would not spend time and money in order to access clean drinking water.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
