PWAP worked with multiple groups in Ghana on clean water projects, beginning with Global Brigades in 2013.
Most recently, PWAP worked with the Akumanyi Foundation, a Columbus-based organization, to empower youth and women through community development. The project began with primary data collection on baseline characteristics and community goals of those in the rural village of Penim. Combining social and cultural information regarding WASH knowledge with data on common water contaminants, specific educational outreach programs and water-filtering infrastructure were selected and developed for implementation in Penim. In line with the mission of the Akumanyi Foundation, the water purification system was created to be operated as a business by Penim women. Project implementation took place in June and July of 2017, and post-implementation survey data indicated successful integration of the water purification business into life in Penim.
