CIWED Ghana Constructed a Mechanized Borehole for Kpatiya Community

In a concerted effort to address the water scarcity issues faced by the Kpatiya community in the Central Gonja District of the Savanna Region of Ghana, CIWED Ghana, with funding support from the Embassy of Japan in Ghana, successfully constructed a new mechanized borehole facility. This initiative forms part of our ongoing commitment to improving access to clean and safe water for underserved communities.

The Kpatiya community has historically struggled with inadequate access to potable water, impacting health, hygiene, and overall quality of life. Prior to this intervention, residents primarily relied on distant and often unsafe water sources, which posed significant health risks and time burdens, particularly for women and children.

CIWED Ghana extends its deepest gratitude to the Embassy of Japan in Ghana for their generous support and partnership in this vital project. We also acknowledge the cooperation and enthusiasm of the Kpatiya community, whose involvement was crucial to the project’s success.

The construction of the mechanized borehole in Kpatiya is a testament to the positive impact of international collaboration and community-driven development. CIWED Ghana remains committed to fostering sustainable development and improving the livelihoods of vulnerable communities across the region.
