Conclusion of Yagha Borehole Project – Ghana

This project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Caitlin Wright. To read about the start of the project, CLICK HERE.

The project was designed to build a borehole along the road junction for Jirapa District.


Caitlin reports:

The drilling company came to the community, found the best location within the specified site for the borehole, and within two days had drilled into the earth to the water table.

The borehole cement foundation and pump were installed, and the community of Gbane had a new, functioning borehole!

One of the elders told me, the PCV, in Dagaare “We thank God, you have brought us water to fight illnesses and aid the women of our community.” I was given a goat as a thank you token, and it was one of the projects that were most rewarding.

We extend our thanks to Caitlin for completing this important project.
