Santrokofi Bume initiates self-help water project

The chiefs and people of Santrokofi Bume, a town in the Hohoe Municipality have initiated a self-help water project to increase the natives’ access to portable water.
The project with technical know-how by DANIDA is about 50 percent complete, and has source-water from mountains in the community which is then stored in a large reservoir at the outskirt of the town.
With gravity, water would be pumped into a number of reservoirs in the town and then distributed into homes at no cost.
Through the leadership of the Assembly Member for the area, Vitus Tetteh, popularly known as Efo Koku, and two other natives, the community was successful in securing funding from donor agencies outside Ghana to support the project.
The town is making judicious use of communal labour in executing the ongoing project.
When Lorlornyo News visited the project site last Monday, workforce mainly made up of steel benders and masons were busy executing their tasks for the day.
Assembly Member for the area, Vitus Tetteh, in an interview with Lorlornyo News said the chiefs and people of Santrokofi Bume had resolved not to rely solely on the central government for developmental projects in the community.
He applauded natives for selfless services they were rendering to their community in its bid to develop.
He said the water project, when completed, apart from adding large litres to what the community already possesses would also serve as a source of income for the community.
He said excess water would be sold out to individuals and companies in need of it.
