Extension of Pipe Borne Water to Adalekpoe Community
Adalekpoe is a small village in North Tongu District of Ghana’s Volta Region with a population of 270 people, all belonging to the Ewe tribe. The population are farmers, cassava and maize are the main crops. Mafi-Kumase, 7 km from Adalekpoe, is the closest place with facilities like electricity, telephone and shops. Maurizio Albani, a board member of AMURT Italy and ScanCAD employee, saw first hand the dire water situation at Adallekpoe. The women and girls have to trek twenty minutes to the nearest water source; the water was blackish and clearly unsafe. The Adalekpoe people requested assistance to connect them to the Mafi-Kumase water project. The community helped digging and covering 1.85 km of trench. The standpipe at Adalekpoe village was officially opened with a traditional ceremony. The headman poured libation and invoked the deities to bless and protect the village and the water project. The population of Adalekpoe will be forever grateful to ScanCAD International for making possible something that they never thought would be never be able to enjoy: clean and safe pipe borne water!
