THE STORY:

Last month, 5 volunteers from Dream Africa Care Foundation traveled to the small village of Larabanga in the Northern region of Ghana. During their trip, they experienced first hand the dire need for a clean and reliable water source within the community. The Savannah Water and Garden Project aims to provide the Salia family of 11, over 300 school children and the community with a consistent and sustainable source of water. Currently the community relies on an unsanitary and small dam as their source of water. Women and children are burdened to walk great distances to gather the water in small buckets- this water is used to cook, wash clothes, wash dishes, bathe, flush the toilet and as drinking water. Since the water serves as the primary source of water for their family, women and children often take many trips to the dam daily. However, the dam water is only available during the six month rainy season. During the six month dry season, water in Larabanga is even more limited making simple daily tasks a challenge. Through the completion of the Well the Salia family will be able to impact over 600 individuals. In addition to providing a steady source of the clean water, the Well will also support the Garden Project. Notably, malnutrition is also a key problem in the region. Without a reliable source of water vegetables and fruits are lacking, lending to improper nutrition. The Salia family proposes to use the water to sustain a vegetable garden that the entire community can benefit from. Further the school children will play an active role in supporting the garden, teaching them valuable lessons on the importance of nutrition. The potential impact for the Larabanga community is tremendous. Please help us reach our goal. * If we were to reach our goal, all additional funds will go towards the medical expenses of the children in the Lords Arm Childrens Home.
