Water Projects



The Water For Improved Sanitation and Health, the WISH project is AGCF’s approach to reducing and progressively eliminating communicable diseases in deprived communities by making potable water accessible.

We have constructed twelve (12) water facilities for remote, off-grid communities in Ghana's Volta, Eastern, and Northern regions. 

Kudikope Water facility

We have successfully constructed a mechanized borehole for the village of Kudikope in the Asuogyaman District of the Eastern region of Ghana.
With a population of about 1000, the village had been without safe drinking water for decades.
Residents drank directly from the river, which they also bathed in and used for other domestic needs. The leadership of AGCC reached out to the Kurtishi, Mena, and Shaqiri families, who have been our partners for WISH, and they took it upon themselves to pool resources for the project. It is important to note that these families have funded five of the six water systems we have constructed so far for hard-to-reach communities in rural Ghana.

Polee Water Facility 

With sponsorship from the Mena & Shaqiri families, we have provided potable drinking water for Polee in the Wa West district of the Upper West region.

This facility is benefiting over 700 residents in Polee including women and children.
Also with water facility community members, especially schoolchildren have water to improve their hygiene to prevent illnesses.  

Bakpa Akplakope Water Facility

The water projects team hit the road from Accra to Bakpa Akplakope in the volta region. It took us about 2 hours of zestful search through the bushes and open fields to discover several fractures beneath the earth’s crust, indicating the availability of underground water.

This was done by Mr. Eric Andoh, the contracted geological engineer, and his assistant with the team and the locals volunteering their help. On December 24, AGCC completed drilling work on the borehole and officially handed over the facility to the community. About 600 people from three communities are direct beneficiaries of this project.
