Mission Statement

The Water Access Now mission is to bring sustainable water to villages in Ghana with the most urgent need. We believe that practical solutions and real relationships are the formula for success. We believe that water is a basic human right. Today there are over nine million people in Ghana that lack predictable clean water. Water-borne illnesses and parasites plague villages that lack clean water sources, and when water is not readily available women and girls spend many of their waking hours fetching water for their families.

About This Cause

The Water Access Now mission is to bring sustainable water to villages in Ghana with the most urgent need. We believe that practical solutions and real relationships are the formula for success. We believe that water is a basic human right. Today there are over nine million people in Ghana that lack predictable clean water. Water-borne illnesses and parasites plague villages that lack clean water sources, and when water is not readily available women and girls spend many of their waking hours fetching water for their families.
Water Access Now identifies villages that have both the urgent need and also a high likelihood of sustaining a well. Sustainability means that the village and the local district water authority are committed to the long term success of the project. This requires that villages maintain a local water and sanitation (WATSAN) committee, and that the local district water authority is involved in and committed to the long term success of each well. We work directly with our partners in Ghana - partners that have a proven track record with us, and partners that share our vision of access, sustainability, and low overhead. Our organization provides much of the startup costs associated with building and maintaining a well. Our goal is to install the well and - more importantly, train the village on how to maintain the well.
