Abutia Agordeke School

Ghana 250 beneficiaries Volta Region

Project Complete!

Abutia Agordeke is a rural community school located in the Ho West district of the Volta Region of Ghana. The school was established in 1921 and currently has a population of 250 students from K-6.
Currently students have to walk a long distance and wait in line to access the only borehole well that serves the community. Often students will choose to use water from unsafe sources rather than wasting time at the borehole. This leads to cases of water borne disease and some students have also been bitten by snakes on their way to fetch water.
The village chiefs, elders and the entire community are ready to work on the project by extending the water system from the borehole to the school via underground piping. They will serve as the laborers to install the cement, pipes, water pump and poly holding tank.
