Ghana solar pump

Construction of a solar pump and creating awareness of proper water usage.

Despite investments of the government, water supply and sanitary infrastructure on the Ghanaian countryside often remain inadequate. The old manual pumps have limited capacity, which forces people to use water out of polluted streams. This pollution is due to the poor sanitary facilities. Electricity from the grid however is too expensive to provide power to the water pumps.

The main goal of the project is the installation of a water pump in the village Adjobue. Due to high sun exposure rates in Ghana, solar panels are a suitable solution. They can provide power to the water pump, in an ecological and self-sustaining fashion. Furthermore, sensitization and collection of rain water for toilets will lead to a more efficient use of the available water. In addition, per request of the local community, a biogas installation, fed by toilets, will be designed.

Humasol tries to support local sellers and markets, by buying most of the components locally. In addition, this supports the idea that installations like these don’t always require external help or funding. Employees of the local NGO COLISO will help Humasol in this search. This project would not be possible without the help and guidance by the Belgian organization FOS.
