We believe access to WASH infrastructure and services is a prerequisite for changing and lifting communities out of a cycle of disease and poverty.     

WHAT WE DO

The project was managed by Ramatu Soaley, Joachim Danbur, Kwame Osei-Amo and Kwabena Asare Bediako. Due to the community not having had any skilled labourers, a builder from Asamang (a small town in the South of Ghana) was hired to help.

When life is lost, there are very few words that can describe the sense of tragedy and emptiness that swallows up any memories of joy that once existed.
But, when life is lost, and you realise that there was something that could have been done to prevent it, how do you describe that feeling?

What's sanitation without handwashing facilities? And, it doesn't have to be anything fancy either. 3 pieces of wood, an empty plastic bottle along with These Instructions are all you need.
Yes, really, it *is* that simple.
