NORTHERN GHANA

The northern Ghana water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) project encompasses 290 communities with an estimated 262,720 beneficiaries, including 309 schools with 38,145 students.

Our integrated WASH approach, which includes sustainable clean water provisions, sanitation solutions and hygiene education training programs, will lead to accelerated progress in these villages in the areas of economics, health, education and environment. The program also includes micro finance setups to create self-sustaining and community-involved initiatives.

The WATERisLIFE WASH Action Groups (WAGs) are developing in many northern Ghana villages in the Tolon and Kumbungu districts. The WAGs are community-driven leadership groups representing water, sanitation and hygiene best practices and planning. The village of Kpaachiyili in the Tolon District has a dynamic and strong WAG Chairman, Niendoo Sumani.

Thanks to your continued support, this village and many others in the area are training and setting up latrine artisan training, soap-making and bucket filter businesses. The direct impact is incredible! Villages are training and helping other communities move up the sanitation ladder. Niendoo spearheaded this initiative, and the results are monumental, trackable and measureable. WATERisLIFE in partnership with Niendoo, his WAG committee and surrounding villages are truly saving lives and transforming communities from within.
