Working Together to Solve Ashanti’s Water Challenges
The Asante Kingdom once stretched well beyond Ghana’s borders. Today, nearly five million people live in the Ashanti Region, Ghana’s most populated area. Known for its gold and cocoa production, the region is located in the southern part of the country. Safe Water Network is working with Ghana's Community Water and Sanitation Agency and His Royal Highness Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the King of Asante Kingdom, who is committed to improving access to safe water for all communities in his region. He has embraced our approach as a solution for those in the region who still lack access to affordable, safe water.

The Ashanti sites use Limited Mechanization Systems (LMS) technology to improve water yield, which allows for convenient access and operational efficiency of existing boreholes.
