Talent of Ghana Foundation a Non-Governmental Organisation in the Central Region has installed a borehole for the Jehovah Sahammah School complex in Senya in the region.
The project is aimed at addressing the water crises the school is faced with.
The NGO with support from its sister partners Ghana For You Foundation in Belgium installed the Nano filtration system which is chemical-free, fights against bacteria, and provides the available nutrients needed by the school children.
Speaking to Citi News after handing over the borehole to the school, Chief Executive Officer for Talent of Ghana Foundation, Samuel Bekoe indicated that the facility will go a long way to address the water challenges school children face in that enclave.
“The provision of this borehole will address the water challenges of school children while enhancing their performance at school. What is special about this borehole is that we have installed a Nano filtration system which takes away the germs in the water. The projects cost 14,000 euros,” Samuel Bekoe said.
Mr. Bekoe noted that as an NGO they are faced with financial challenges and would need government support to help put smiles on the faces of children in Senya.
Leader of Ghana For You Foundation, Priscilla Smullenberghs said her aim is to make underprivileged children happy hence the move to provide the school children with potable water.
She added that her NGO will continue to provide support in various forms to ensure that children in the Senya enclave are catered for.
“I am committed to making the children in this part of the country happy. Getting access to potable drinking water will help them grow healthy as school children.”
Robin Severi of Aqua Nano water filters is optimistic that the borehole will last long and serve the purpose for which it was built.
“This is one of the best ways of providing potable water especially in Africa and it has the capacity to last longer to serve the purpose for which it was built,” Robin Severi said.
The Oma Odefe of Senya Ampabo Nenyi Issiw VI who was there to grace the occasion was grateful to the NGO for supporting the community adding that more of such gestures are welcomed.
“They have made my day and I am happy because this will even go to the extent of benefiting the entire community,” the Oma Odefe said.
