Community Support

Supported by our local
NGO partner – Saha Ghana

In 2022 we funded our new partner Saha Ghana to set up 22 small water treatment businesses run by local women, to supply clean water to remote, rural villages surrounding Dambai and Krachi.

In 2023 we continued to work with Saha Gaha on a new pilot project funding the expansion and rehabilitation of a large water dugout supplying clean drinking water to the 466 people living in Sinsina, situated in North Gonja District of Ghana.

The dugout is linked to a small water treatment centre run by two local women but in recent years it has been drying out for several months every year due to climate change, leaving the village with no nearby water source.

Having their dugout expanded means that the women entrepreneurs can keep the water treatment centre open throughout the year, supplying clean drinking water to the residents of Sinsina. Women and children will not have to walk far distances to alternative sources of water, allowing children to stay in school and women to focus on other important activities.
