Project Overview

In 2021 Global Brigades and its partner, the Ghana Water Company installed a regional distribution network in Asebu Ekroful providing clean water to over 3,547 people.

Asebu Ekroful, Ghana

Community members in Asebu Ekroful, located in the Abura District, rely primarily on farming, fishing and trading to make a living. The primary goods and food products produced in Asebu Ekroful are cassava and sugarcane. One of the major challenges for the development of their community was the lack of access to clean, sufficient drinking water. Global Brigades designed a water system in 2021 for the community of Asebu Ekroful and now they have access to a distribution network that takes water to 3,547 community members.

Water System Solution

In 2021, Global Brigades worked with the GWC to modify and expand its distribution infrastructure to get treated water to strategic points within Asebu Ekroful where. This conection takes clean water to 3,547 community members living in Asebu Ekroful and meets the standards of the World Health Organization. By placing them in areas near the population, families spend less time and energy retrieving water for use in their homes.
