Dear Maji Changemaker,

 

This is an update on Project Maji’s “Sustainable Solar-Powered Water Kiosks in Ghana” Project on GlobalGiving. Ghana, our home country, is where we launched our operations in 2015 with a single solar-powered kiosk. We have made remarkable progress since then. We are thrilled to inform you that your support has enabled us to cross the 50-site benchmark in the West-African country. This brings our total to 62 sites across Ghana and Kenya, our focus countries.

 

Project Maji’s Impact in Ghana

  • Installed 51 solar-powered water kiosks in rural Ghana
  • Pumped more than 56 million litres of safe water
  • Served 45,000 Ghanaian people

Handwashing and Soap Distribution Campaign

Due to our strong presence in the country and established rapport across a large network of communities, our Ghanaian sites have also been the centre of our handwashing campaign. In the early days of the outbreak, country-wide lockdown, social distancing restrictions and the safety of our teams made it increasingly difficult for us to deliver the trainings. Yet, recognizing the urgency of the situation, we continued working behind the scenes. Actively fundraising online and rallying support for the cause, we managed to create valuable partnerships to raise our impact. As soon as the lockdown eased across Ghana, we mobilized our teams on the ground to deliver practical handwashing training along with bars of soap.

Till date, your support has helped us reach 12 communities, more than 2,000 household heads and 10,000 individuals with handwashing essentials and training. Moreover, we are not standing still. We are actively fundraising online and leveraging our network offline, to help us reach more communities with the trainings.

Please take a minute to read about the progress we have made in Ghana through our COVID-19 response.

 

Thank you for your support

We, at Project Maji, are grateful for your extraordinary support for this project. More Importantly, the communities are very grateful not only for ensuring sustainable access to safe water but also supporting our handwashing drive to prevent a potential outbreak. Thank you for your initiative in unlocking a better future for them, shielding them from COVID-19 and truly transforming lives. We will keep you posted about future progress.
