Bringing good health and clean water to a community

A borehole well gives the people of Wantugu, Ghana access to a valuable resource 

By William Anim-Dankwa, communications manager, Ghana

WANTUGU, Ghana — Walking through the northern Ghanaian community of Wantugu, the sight of six gardens filled with bright green spinach, okra and pepper, seems like a mirage. Imagine it in contrast to land, parched during the hot harmattan season, which causes wells to dry and gardens to brown. 

Now there is hope. Stop to admire the vegetables, and you’ll see rubber hoses snaking through the garden beds, dripping beads of clean water.

The drip technology is part of a joint project, between Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) and the Baptist Child Development Program, to build two solar-powered borehole wells and give the Wantugu community access to safe drinking water. 

Just six months ago, children drank from ponds polluted by cow droppings; diarrhea and skin rashes were common. Children, particularly girls, missed lessons fetching water.


"I was always late and tired [fetching water before school] and scored very low marks. Now my marks are much improved!"

- Fatima, 14


But all that has changed.

“It is remarkable that reported cases of diarrhoeal disease have reduced drastically in just a few months,” explains Emmanuel Obeng-Ohene, the local health clinic officer. 

Children are spending more time in school, can access potable water as well as wash their hands after using the toilet and are taking an interest in the gardens. The vegetables are improving community health and the nutrition of children at three schools. 

Today, more than 7,000 people have access to clean water.
