THE STORY:

Togo Water Project

  • The Dapaong Rotary Club will serve as advisors and open a water supply maintenance account for the water committee at a local bank. 
  • The water committee will collect fees for water withdrawals from the improved wells in Phase 2.  
  • After the second phase is completed in 2009, we estimate that 13 improved wells will generate $65 per day in water supply funds. 
  • The water committee will be able to pay for expansion of the system   to include all 38 current  wells.
  • These wells will provide 20 liters per day for 4,000 people. 

 

What is the need?

  • The village population (especially children and young  women) walk long distances to get water during the dry season. 
  • Water contains disease-causing bacteria and parasites as well as mosquitoes and river flies.
  • Many children, especially young girls, are forced to drop out of school in the dry season to fetch water for their families. 
  • Phase 1 of this project will deepen three of the shallow, hand-dug wells in the village of Koka.
  • Pumps will be disinfected, sealed, and installed so that   the wells can be operated year-round.
