In Ghana presently, we are in the dry season period and this time round, access to clean water becomes a major problem in most rural communities. In my project community where we have been able to installed the water systems through this project, the people including 12 years David Boateng (not real name) with his other colleagues school children are very happy this time. Because there is water flowing from the water system we provided in their community. They no more walk long distance to look for unwholesome water before they go to school. They now have access to clean water for drinking bathing, washing and cooking. However, that is not the same case with communities without water systems in our project area. So far seven communities have been identified to be experiencing serious water problem. Some of the community leaders and members of these communities are always on us calling for help to come to their aid.

We are therefore appealing once again to our cherish donors to donate to our project. Tell your friends and family to tell a friend to donate to our water project. Our plans in 2020 is to ensure that these seven communities are provided with the water system to ameliorate the present situation in the identified communities. We need the support of all to make this possible.

Is has not been easy with our work in completing the new water system at Twifo Osenegya. But through the effort of project community members and local fund raising, we managed to raise some funds to procure the electric pump and accessories to complete the water system. Water is now flowing from the water system at the Osenegya community. The water system is going to serve about 320 people in the community including women and children. According to Mavis (not real name) she is now happy with her five children as well as members of the community. They believe access to the clean water would improve their lives and make live easy as they would no more walk long distance to fetch unclean water for their domestic uses. They are full of praises to TRYAWCO and the donors for making this possible.

Presently we are looking for funds to start new water systems in the identified project communities. We are therefore appealing to our cherish donors to continue to donate to our project to enable us start work on the new water systems. We are drawing close to the dry season starting from mid-November and we need the support of you all to help us make this possible in fixing the water system in the communities.

We have been looking forward to receive funds to procure an electric pump to complete work on the new water system at Twifo Osenegya. We have not been successful in the past three months to achieve this. Work on the new water system is almost done, we have completed the concrete platform, mount the polytank with the plumbing work done. We now need the electric pump to connect to the drilled borehole with electricity to pump water into the polytank for the community to have access to the clean water. Mavis Okyire (not real name) and her 5 children as well as the community members are very anxious to see water flowing from the new water system as soon as possible.

In this regards, we are appealing to our cherish donors to help us by donating to our project to enable us complete the Osenegya water system and also to start drilling of boreholes in the new identified communities.

The water system started last year 2018 at Gomoa Oguaa and Gomoa Odina with funds donated for the C-WOW project has now been completed. The two Water system were commissioned in early February 2019. The two beneficiary communities are currently accessing clean water closer to their homes. As a result women and children in the communities no more walk long distances to access unwholesome water, which they have used from generation to generation. Everybody in these two communities are full of praises to the donors who make this possible. Work started on another two (2) new water systems are progressing steadily in the new project communities at Twifo Mbaabaasa and Twifo Oseneagya. The borehole drilling has been completed on the water systems and work on the concrete platform has been completed on one of the Wells. The poly-tank has also been mounted and the electric pump fixed with the plumbing works being completed for water to flow. We need electric pump to fix on the second water system to complete it as soon as possible. We are therefore appealing to our cherish donors to help us procure additional pumps to completed work on the new water system and start new ones.

Work started in the last quarter has progressed steadily. Two (2) new water systems were started at Gomoa Oguaa and Gomoa Odina. Funds received last year towards the C-WOW project has been used to drill the boreholes. Poly tanks has been procured together with the pumps and other materials for the completion of the water systems. The platforms for mounting the poly tanks are almost done and the community would soon see water flowing for their use. The two beneficiary communities has been very cooperative and happy to see their dreams of accessing clean water come true. Both children and the elderly are hoppy because they would not walk long distance for unclean water they share with animals anymore.

To enable us complete work on our ongoing water systems and start new ones, we are appealing to our cherish donors to continue to donate for the activities our project.
