RAF focuses our efforts in three humanitarian areas: WATER, SANITATION AND EDUCATION.
Water: Statistics shows that only 46% of Ghanaians has access to adequate and clean water. Over the years and especially recently, we have seen the water crisis in Ghana worsen. Both urban and rural Ghana is in desperate need of adequate and clean water. The galamsey (illegal mining) in Ghana has also polluted almost all the water bodies that our communities depend on for cooking, washing, and farming. This has left the water situation in a deeper crisis, but RAF is overseeing many local projects to reverse this dire trend and help the people of rural Ghana.
In earlier years, we adopted the EXPO-50 technology from our partners in South Carolina, Hydro Missions International. This technology aided us in hand drilling for several communities in rural Ghana. We have also partnered with WATER AID GHANA to drill wells in rural Ghana. Today, we have adopted the Living Water Treatment Plant from Water Missions International to aide us further. This plant taps from surface water bodies, processes it through several channels with Alum and Chlorine, stores it in a reservoir and distributes the water to vantage points in a community. This process is more effective and long lasting.
Help us save lives in rural Ghana by partnering with us to supply these plants to communities in need. Sanitation: Unfortunately,only 13% of Ghanaians have access to proper sanitation as of now. RAF does not have the funding necessary to initiate rural sanitation waste management projects, but we would still like to see this problem resolved. Therefore, we are seeking the support of both local and international partners in this regard. Open defecation is still the norm in most communities in Ghana. We have recently developed a simple mechanized latrine through the help of our architects. We intend to construct these 2 unit latrine in all communities (with about 50 to 200 people) in areas of Ghana that lack it. If there are more than 200 people in that particular area, we will still meet their needs by constructing four or six similar units. We also have a hand washing and soap making-teaching program in conjunction with our efforts in this area. By 2035, we hope to have reached the full potential of our mission. To do this, we rely greatly on support, contributions and partnerships from both local and international communities.
Education: In helping the government of Ghana develop a more cohesive and modern educational system, we have helped construct 6 unit classroom blocks with state of the art ICT laboratories and a library. We also team up with volunteers from the western world to volunteer as teachers in most of our rural schools. In the past and present, we have given various educational materials, worth thousands of dollars, to rural schools as aids for teaching and learning. We seek to do even more with your continuous support and partnership.
