Kwahu Yeboah Borehole
Kwahu-Yeboah is another remote community with a population of approximately 600 people hidden amongst the jungle and flood plains, accessed only via pot-holed red mud tracks and lies a significant distance from the nearest town.
The borehole in their community has not been working for months leaving them with no close access to clean water. When Emma and Martin visited the community and the school, the Headmaster explained that before the children start school they have to take it in turns, class by class, to collect water from a borehole further away and fill up their water container so that everyone has access to clean water throughout the day. Several hours are wasted collecting water each day which has a direct impact on the time the children spend studying.
We had great news from Ghana this week that we have now repaired the borehole in Kwahu-Yeboah. Thanks to your support this borehole is giving clean accessible water to the community and also enabling children to spend more time in school gaining an education.
