Since December 2021, Vidya Jyoti has undertaken a water project in two regions of Ghana, Africa – Volta and Eastern region.
Volta region has a total of 18 districts. Vidya Jyoti focused its work
in one district called North Tongu. Twelve existing boreholes were repaired by installing new, high quality handpumps, while three new boreholes were drilled with a new handpump and concrete platform installed. 15 villages, with a total population of approximately 18,100 villagers were provided with clean water in North Tongu.
Of the 33 districts in the Eastern region of Ghana, Vidya Jyoti carried out work in four districts (circled). Three new hand pumps were installed after boreholes were dug and platforms installed, and eight existing boreholes were repaired by installing new high quality handpumps. This has provided clean water across 11 villages to a total population of approximately 13,400 villagers.
