Valley View University; Accra, Ghana
The Valley View University students will implement a water purification project to bring safe drinking water to the rural community of Nsakye. The team plans to construct two new boreholes with a treatment and distribution system while also directing existing stream water into a storage tank for its own purification and distribution.
Tovila Water Solutions, a local water consultancy firm, has agreed to help train community members to operate and maintain the water treatment systems, ensuring long-term functioning. Furthermore, the team will also educate farmers about environmentally-friendly agricultural practices to further improve their incomes and the local environment.
