Worakese Water Project
Impressions of our Worakese Water Project
Worakese is a settlement with about 1,800 inhabitants in the Bosomtwe District, in the Ashanti region, about 4 kilometres from the district capital Kuntenase.
The community’s main sources of income are agriculture and retail trade.
There are 2 boreholes, but due to overusage, they are constantly broken and out of order. In addition, they are located about 500 m from the village, which means that there are long queues, every time you fetch water. As a result, pupils are often late for classes.
So the people have no other choice, than to fetch water from ponds and rivers, which leads to water-born diseases.
Through a mechanized water project, with a storage tank and several taps in the village, we want to ensure that everyone has access to sufficient clean drinking water.
