To mark World Water Day this year, Nestlé Ghana Ltd. and the Ghana Red Cross Society have commissoned a mechanized borehole system in Kadewaso in the Atiwa District, Eastern Region. This borehole system is one of twelve water supply systems, constructed to improve access to safe water in cocoa-growing communities in the Eastern and Ashanti Regions, under the Ghana Sustainable Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project (Ghana-WASH).  The Ghana-WASH Project aims to enhance community resilience by providing clean water to farming communities under the Nestlé Cocoa Plan in Ghana.  So far, the project has offered 115,761 people access to safe water. Ghana-WASH also inspires behavioural change in these communities through the promotion of practices like handwashing. A total of 186,255 people have been impacted with health and hygiene education.

To ensure sustainability, the water  system in Kadewaso is powered by a hybrid system which uses solar power as its main power source and the national grid as a back up. It pumps groundwater into a 50,000 litre overhead steel tank, that supplies clean water through pipes closer to residents. Vending points are strategically located in the communities to reduce time spent by residents on fetching water. These water points dispense water automatically through the use of tokens loaded with “e-credits”, which allows for responsible and convenient use day and night. The water supply system in Kadewaso, which is one of several put up by the Ghana Red Cross with support of Nestlé, gets its water from below the ground, coherent with the World Water Day theme this year: Groundwater – making the invisible, visible.
