We’ve been revisiting AWF’s first project in Ghana. Here are some quote from members of the villages served!
Translated from the Akan, this means: “Africare and African Well Fund, but for you,
we would have never dreamed of getting good water.”
“These people who brought this water might have been reading what is in my mind; they have saved my life and given me hope and time to do other things during the day.”
Yaa is a girl from Akokofe. For her entire life she believed water to be white in colour, because that was the only water she had ever seen.
She had to spend about 90% of her daily life fetching water, especially during the dry season.
– Nartey, an elder leader in Nkwantanum
