Water is Life, at least that is the sentiment among World Partners for Development Ghana. Water is Life is a project that was started to empower people in the impoverished communities of Ghana that don’t have access to safe drinking water. Help bring safe drinking water to the children of Ghana through this innovative water filtration system that can provide each household up to 70 gallons of safe water per day from lakes, ponds, wells, streams, rivers, or rain. The tipping point goal of $2,100 will provide for 70 households and the $7,500 total funding goal will provide for 250 households.
