Brief Description of Activity

 

The aim of this extensive project is to contribute to poverty reduction in Ghana by supporting an improvement in health and living conditions of residents through provision of sustainable water supplies and sanitation systems.

 

The main areas of support are 1) elimination of Guinea Worm disease in all of Ghana 2) improved access to safe water in rural areas and small towns in target regions, 3) capacity building at district level 4) educational programs aimed at improvement of behavioral patterns with respect to use of safe water and sanitary facilities and 5) improved access to sanitation.

 

Our commitment of $2,000 will hopefully be matched by District 7610 and others for a greatly leveraged impact.
