Help Bring Clean Water to 5000 people in Twifu

by Twifu Rural Youth And Women Concern

As indicated in our previous report, the target of our project is to make clean water assessable to 5000 people in Twifu communities. In this regard more communities including schools identified are waiting to be provided with the water facilities. In the last three months we have added three new Wells, which are under construction in the identified communities. Work on these Well is far advanced with concrete lining on two of the wells completed.

The most important needs for the Wells to be completed are the Hand Pumps. Presently, we shall need seven (7) of the pumps to complete all the seven Wells under construction.

School children in Sacoraa Primary School where one of the Well is located are eager to see the Well completed before they are back to school in September. The school children are very happy because they believe the water would quench their perennial thirst for water and improve sanitation in the school. We are therefore once again appealing to you all to donate generously to meet the present needs of our project.

Our warm greetings once again to our cherish donors and we want thank every donor for helping us to make clean water accessible to our people. Currently 2500 people are accessing clean water from the ten (10) Hand Dug Well we have completed since the commencement of the project in 2010.
The project target is to make clean water accessible to 5000 people in our project area in Ghana. More communities are eager and waiting patiently to have these water facilities fixed in their communities. We have worked hard from January to date to ensure that works on the four (4) ongoing wells are completed before June this year. For this to be possible, we once again need the support of our cherish donors to generously donate to help purchase four (4) additional water pumps to complete these wells.
The women and children of Ayaase, Akwekrom, Akutuase and Manfi are looking forward to see this happen soon and we are counting on your valuable donations.


Greetings to all our cherish donors in this New Year 2014. We are eager to see good things to come our way this year 2014.  In our situation, the year 2013 ended with many challenges including lower donations to our project. However, the little we received, we managed to complete the last outstanding Well at Zakari community. Donations received in the last quarter of the year was used to purchased one hand pump, which was used to fixed and completed the Well. The 230 population of Zakari community can now accessed clean water for domestic use and this would go a long way to improve the health of women and children in the community.

All must take note that we have now got ten (10) Hand Dug Wells completed since the commencement of this project, which is currently benefiting about 2500 people.

With help of the project communities, the ongoing work on four (4) new Wells in the communities are almost completed and pumps are needed to complete them in the shortest possible time. We are therefore thanking our cherish donors once again to donate and tell family and friends to donate and help us complete this Wells and to construct new ones as well.

Happy New Year to you all!!!!

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.
