The purpose of this project is as follows: Harvesting rain for improved livelihoods for the people of Wantugu and its surrounding communities in the Tolon district of Ghana. The goal or broad objective of the 12-month project is to contribute to improving health and livelihoods of 492 families in 3 poor towns.
There is lack of clean drinking water, and all the community members are drinking from the community dam which is mostly dry up and sometimes contaminated by animal and human waste and they have to travel along Distance to get water and women and children are the most affected people.
