The overall project was the construction of a Kindergarten/Nursery School in KwakuSae, a community in the West Akim District of the Eastern Region of Ghana. The involvement of Water Charity was for the rainwater collection system.
After the building was largely completed, with walls, roof, floors, and ceilings, the work was done on the water tank. The plumber installed a tap and prepared the tank for installation next to the school.
The building was then completed with doors, windows, and paint. It was then dedicated, and put into use!
Alan expressed his gratitude and that of the community:
We want to thank you all again for helping to make this whole project possible. The town and students are all very excited about the new facility, and we are very happy to be able to offer this project to help improve the life of the students in KwakuSae.
After the conclusion of this project, Alan undertook the renovation of one of the classrooms in the JSS (Junior Secondary School) that had been condemned for safety reasons. This amply demonstrates the momentum that derives from successfully finishing a major endeavor, and building on that base of community support.
Alan and his wife Marian are completing their Peace Corps service and heading home. We owe Alan a debt of gratitude for completing this ambitious project, and continuing to do more.
We again wish to thank The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding for this project.
