WATER FOR LIFE
MEMBERS AND STAFF OF KIRC FOUNDATION VISIT TO SOWIAKYIR AND ITS NEIGHBORING VILLAGES
Sowiakyir is a village located at the outskirt of Efutu in the Central Region of Ghana. The village is a farming community. All the people living in the village are small scale farmers. They depend mainly on their farm product.
Becouse they solely depend on their farm products, they are able to save nothing to cater for their wards fees and other necessities in life due to this most of the children there are school drop outs. Sowiakyir and it neighboring village which share the same problem are in a population of 700 people in total.
The other neighboring villages are Nkokosa, Police Ekruasi, Daakye and Kokaado.all the four surrounding villages do not have access to portable water,electricity,good roads, they drink from dirty river called 'Sowi' and another dirty well I was even wondering how could people live in this poor situation.
The Villages formally boost of two boreholes which are now not working, i even took pictures of them. I discuss with the elders of the village our intention to helping them get portable water to Drink,infact they were very happy with that and even promise use to volunteer labour for the upcoming project the villages has a rich soil and they are also blessed with soo many natural resource.
The four nearby villages will be happy to share the water project when it is done.
They also told me to lobby for more jobs for them, so that they can work and earn something to take their ward to school.
