what clean water means for Ghana
Updated: Apr 27, 2018
Close to six million people in Ghana rely on surface water.
Surface water contains life-threatening parasites and high microbial content. In some regions of the country, the water has significant water discoloration and contains dangerous minerals. During the dry season, many areas suffer from water scarcity.

Global Water Promise is focused on achieving sustainability in Ghana so that communities can successfully own and operate safe water resources.
How We Plan to Help Ghana
With a national action plan, the Government is aiming to make Ghana a developed country by 2029. To achieve this goal, every Ghanaian needs clean water, toilets and hygiene services. Understanding that a lot of work needs to be done, Global Water Promise has begun to survey communicates in need.
