Nkwanta Water project
Nkwanta is a settlement with 2,100 inhabitants in the Bosomtwe District, in the Ashanti Region, 4 kilometres from the district capital Kuntenase. The community’s main source of income is agriculture.
There was not enough drinking water available for the people in the village. There was only one borehole, which was located about 500 meters from the village and did not supply enough water.
Every morning there were long queues. Because of this, pupils were usually late for school. In addition, the well was often defective due to overloading in use. Then people fetched their water from ponds and streams in the surrounding area, which carries a high risk of water-related diseases.
The construction of a mechanised water supply system with storage tank and taps helps to remedy this situation.
Costs: approx. 5.200,00 €
