  • Closest water source before this project: The people of Ayitrum depended on a well that was located at the Chief's residence. Others, who had the means, also purchased from water trucks and sold water in the community. The inhabitants also depended on rain water as a source.
Descripton of the Project:  A new well was constructed. The inside was cemented and a 37 foot pipe with a new Nira pump was provided to dispense the water.

Descripton of the village & people:  The people of the village are mostly peasant crop farmers. They grow crops like, maize, cocoa, cassava, and pawpaw. They also do some petty trading. Their houses are well built with clay and concrete blocks and roofed with zinc sheets. Traveling is difficult as their roads are rough. They have a church to serve them. They also have a clinic, school and electricity available in the community.
Description of the well dedication:  About 30 people attended the ceremony; the Gospel was shared with the villagers. They were told of God's love and that Jesus is the Living Water needed in our lives. Five of the villagers saw the need to make Jesus their Lord and Savior. They were prayed for and advised to find a Bible believing church to attend.

Georgina Afedji, village resident:  "We are very grateful to you for providing us this well. We can now enjoy potable drinking water. Thank you."
