Building a well at a school in Ghana

in #impactn4 years ago (edited)

In January 2019 the staff of Kwakyekrom M/A Basic School (Ghana) decided to engage for building a well at their school. 500+ children at the school had been drinking dirty water each and every day for a long time. This could eventually cause diseases like cholera, malaria, fever, typhoid, amoebiasis, and jaundice. Furthermore, by walking a long distance to fetch water the students missed a lot of their classes.

A school teacher reached out to Steemit Kids World Foundation, a Ghanaian registered non-profit organization.They presented a finance plan and asked for a donation of 2830 gh cedis to build a well near the school. This could either be a round well or a pump like this one on the photo.

Steemit Kids World offered to engage because they saw the risk, that not taking care could lead to loosing all the young ones at their early stages. They presented the proposal to people engaged within a worldwide blockchain community. A first donation, covering about one third of the sum needed was raised immediately. Then the process started to slow down. Will the well ever be built.
