W4W – Water Project Sonitra

The situation: In Sonitra Community, in the outskirts of Accra in Ghana 1,500 people are fetching their water from a still water lake in an abandoned stone quarry. The water is unfit for drinking and have resultet in death and disease at several occasions. Furthermore several children have drowned in the lake and the authorities are planning to close the place down for the locals, leaving them with no other nearby option to get water. The solution: A local entrepreneur will drill a borehole, install an electric pump and connect it to the national powergrid. The pump will be connected to a 10.000 liter storage tank and several taps will be drawn from the tank, for more people to fetch water at the same time. A committee of community members will be caretakers of the system, and be responsible for keeping the storage tank full. They will also collect funds from the users, for a bank account meant for maintenance. The local NGO: Young Visionary Leaders Ghana, will supervise the managing of the project. Donate: Any private person or company can be a part of the solution in Sonitra by donating directly to the project on W4W’s website. You can choose to have your name and donation mentioned on the page, or to be anonymous. Once the full amount for the project has been reached, the project will be marked as Accomplished by Crowd funding. If at any time before the full amount is raised, a single company takes upon them to sponsor the full amount, this company will be marked as head sponsor of the project, and have their name and logo presented as a hyperlink for their website, on the banner for the project, on the front page. If this happens, all lesser donations for the particular project, along with the information of donators, will be transferred to another of W4W’s unfinished projects. ALL W4W’s WORK IS VOLUNTEER AND ALL MONEY DONATED TO W4W’s PROJECTS GOES 100% UNCUT TO W4W’s WATER PROJECTS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES.
