The situation:

Hatsukope community in the Volta Region of Ghana, close to the Togolese border, is the center point of four communities which are all struggling from the same lack of clean water sources. The other 3 communities are: Tokor, Laklivikope and Agorvime. All rural farming and fishing communities, relying on hand dug wells with salty water and natural contaminated streams.

The solution:

With funding from Hadsten Højskole and assistance from our partners Love Spring Water and Young Visionary Leaders Ghana we successfully raised funds for a geological survey and established a borehole at the depth of 90 meters and a functional public water pumping system, including a 2HP electric water pump, two 8,000 liters storage tanks, 4 standing taps and 8 taps on the concrete platform, and a painted signboard. Additionally the community has established a water committee responsible for caretaking and maintenance of the water project in all future.
