The Borehole

The drilling of a borehole was motivated by the inconveniences and the growing costs of water trucking; the growing population at the Harfo Girls Center.


and the wish to provide water to the surrounding Harfo community during periods of severe drought. Lack of clean water exposed the high number of students enrolled at the center to the threat of water borne diseases. GECPD with the support of Islamic Relief drilled a borehole, constructed an elevated water tank, piping system at the Harfo Girls’ Center. Islamic Relief also supported purchase of a power generator to pump and supply water. The borehole provides clean water to the students enabling them to maintain hygiene and sanitation.
