The Higher Life Outreach Mission, a Ghanaian non-governmental organisation (NGO), and Legacy Water Foundation of Canada, also an NGO, have together financed the construction of a borehole facility for the boys dormitory block of the Senya Senior High School at Senya Beraku in the Central Region.
With a borehole in place now, students would no longer have to travel far from their school in search of water, a situation that often puts them in harm’s way.
The foundation and the donation
While presenting the facility, Rev. Tagoe said the foundation settled on the school for its generosity based on their observations and recognition of the dangers male students of the school had to go through in search of water for their daily chores, especially before classes began.
“In January when we visited we found that the male students were in serious need of water and today we are here to make sure that the problem is over,” he said.
Rev. Tagoe said the two organisations would embark on more of such projects to help other deprived communities and institutions with poor sanitation and also in need of water.
He appealed to the government and other charitable institutions to support the foundation to carry out the responsibility of serving deprived communities with basic amenities.
In interviews with some of the students who were openly excited, they expressed gratitude to their benefactors and said the unavailability of water on campus had affected their studies.
The Assistant Headmaster of the school, Mr Samuel Inkoom, expressed his gratitude to the Higher Life Outreach Mission and its Canadian partner Legacy Water Foundation for their support.
Meanwhile, he has appealed to the government to come to the aid of the school, since it still needs assistance in other sectors.
