We are a small group of University of Portsmouth students. We all come from different backgrounds and upbringing but we have a united strive to help others. 

Summary of KofiBadukrom 

KofiBadukrom is a small rural village in the Brong-Ahafo region of Ghana. The village sits on the Ghanian and Ivorian boarder and therefore spilt in two halves with each half having different rules and regulations.  As its population grows, its resources are stretched. The village survives and relies on its profits from crops and small businesses. Many people suffer from poverty and the levels of poor sanitation are high. The nearest commercial town is around two hours away on unreliable, unsafe and costly minibus transport.  The villagers also suffer from the lack of governmental care.

Issue

KofiBadukrom requires urgent funds to build 2 elephant pumps. Currently, there is only one pump, which often breaks and is unreliable, that supplies the village and surrounding settlements. The villagers have raised their concerns about having only one pump to provide the whole village, community health clinic and other settlements. We have talked to the village chief and who feels a great deal of responsibility to ensure the 2 pumps are build by the end of 2016. We have taken it upon ourselves to get like-minded people on board to campaign and raise money for this crisis. .

Costs 

Each pump costs £1,200  

To repair the fault pump it will cost £600
