Aniamote Community School

Ghana 200 beneficiaries Wassa Amenfi
Aniamote is a rural community located in the Wassa Amenfi district in the Western region of Ghana and has a population of approximately 2,700 people. The major economic activity in the community is subsistent farming, trading, and hunting. The people are very friendly and accommodating.  

Aniamote Community School was established in September of 1945 by the Government of Ghana in partnership with the community. The school has not received any major development from the government since its establishment, so the community members always come together to support the school through communal labor with the support of other organizations. Being the only school in the area, the population currently stands at 200 students from kindergarten to grade 9. 
The school is connected to a water source but unfortunately, the water pump quit working long ago, and the poly tank split open because the platform it sits on developed cracks. Currently, the school does not have any water which negatively affects teaching, learning, and the promotion of hygiene among the pupils.
Our implementing partner, Volunteers for Amelioration of Rural Areas (VARAS), will oversee the installation of a new water pump and a new poly tank and tank stand to store water. The community will provide labor and much of the building materials (lumber/cracked stones), which can be found locally. VARAS will be in charge of ensuring the success and sustainability of this life-changing project.
