  • Closest water source before this project: The people depended upon a nearby pond and also another bore hole in the community.
Descripton of the village & people: This is a fairly big town with an ever-growing population of farmers, traders, and other people of various trades. Their houses are nicely constructed and well spaced out. There are schools for the children and also some churches in place.
Nana Opoku Nyarko VI, Chief of the Town: "I am glad you came to this community and that you also brought us life. There are a lot of challenges in the community and I am happy you have helped me solve one of them. However, like Oliver Twist, I would be grateful if you could give more by extending the same to other suburbs of the community. Thank you and God bless you greatly!"
Honourable D.D. Nartey, Assemblyman: "We are grateful that after depending upon a pond for some years for domestic use, we can now drink from a better source of water. Thank you for the wonderful work you have done for us! This has been a big headache for us and we are grateful you have helped us out of this situation. Thank you very much for the relief you have brought us and we hope to see you again."
Descripton of the well dedication: There was a colorful durbar, which was organized by the Chief and his elders, to welcome SBBR leader Mattie Kinard and her team to the community. They proceeded to make them honorable citizens of the town, with Mattie being dubbed "Nana Offei." The crowd was presented with the Gospel message and advised to live lives that would honor the Lord. Those who responded to the altar call were prayed for and advised to fellowship with any Bible-believing church of their choice. Over 250 people attended the ceremony, and 25 people made decisions for the Lord.
