Malaria Prevention

Update February 23, 2015.
The Universe offers you opportunities you need, when you need them and usually comes completely unexpected.  This first happened in 2006 on our first adventure through West Africa and two years later we were a registered 501c3 non profit building our first clean water well in Ghana.  Five boreholes later providing water to approximately 10,000 people and various other projects including educational scholarships, business development for women, malaria prevention and even prosthetic hands we are once again initiating a new clean water project in the northeast region of Ghana.  Which means this year 2015, we are going back to Africa! 

Our focus is clean water for the prevention of water born illnesses. We are working in the Upper East Region of Ghana, a remote rural area which borders Burkina Faso and Togo. The area is dry and poor with less than half of the population able to access safe water.

The rural areas suffer from many waterborne diseases, including diarrhea and guinea worm, which is only endemic in Ghana and three other countries. Guinea worm can be eradicated by drinking clean, uncontaminated water. Lack of access to safe drinking water contributes to the staggering burden of diarrhoeal diseases, particularly affecting the young and the poor. Nearly one in five child deaths is due to diarrhoea. Diarrhoea kills more young children than AIDS, malaria and measles combined. Drinking contaminated water also leads to reduced personal productive time, with widespread economic effects.

The donations you make and the tours to Ghana all go towards building another borehole in a small rural village whose water source is often no more then a brown muddy pond exposed to livestock
and other animals.  Women and children walk miles many times daily for a bucket of dirty water.

By providing clean water women have more time to develop a business and for their families. Children have more time for school. Subsistence farming is the primary livelihood of the villages we provide safe clean water for.


Each year we take a small group of travelers on our Ghana Tour to see our numerous projects.

Livestock Projects
By giving families a hand-up, not just a hand-out, we empower them to turn lives of hunger and poverty into self-reliance and hope. $100 USD will buy three goats in Ghana. This improves a families nutrition and generates income in sustainable ways. The recipients of our Livestock Projects agree to give one of its animal's offspring to another family in need.
Passing on the Gift. 

Perma nets and Lifestraws

In 2011 we joined with  the fight against Malaria and delivered 200 insecticidal nets on our Ghana tour to the communities of our clean water projects. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates an annual occurrence of 300-500 million cases of malaria worldwide. The toll is the highest in developing countries where at least one million people die from the disease. Young children account for most of these deaths.  Lifestraws are a portable water filtration device we give to communities that are waiting for their clean water well.
