Title: Drinking water Borehole
Place: Luisa Community – Builsa Region (Ghana)
Project date: October 2017
Budget: 14.898 GHS (2.750 €)
Beneficiaries: 850 citizens
It had only been a few months since the creation of our organization in that same year; however after the success of the web launch and social media, a summer full of activities and the great welcoming of our closest we managed to collect enough money to develop our first project (nowadays, yours too): a borehole of drinkable water in a small community in the north of Ghana called Luisa where we also have planned to build up a Primary Education School in 2018. Its inhabitants still coexist without light nor water in their adobe houses in the north of the country.
Threemembers of our organization (Henar, Pepe and Roberto) paid for their plane tickets and invested their work holiday to witness and ensure that the works continued their normal course because as a 75m hole had to be dug, a formal contract was signed with the firm ATUNYA GHANA Ltd which provided the materials and means to makeitdoable.
The project will imply with no doubt a significant improvement in the life quality of the members of the community, not only because of the long distances that had to be met in order to reach the closest well above all kids and women to collect water) but it will also avoid a great number of diseases and infections, it will ease the hygiene and it will provide with water to the scarce cattle that lives in the savanna.
