Water For West Africa’s mission is to achieve the goals of improving living conditions and opportunities for the people of West Africa

As a program of Ghana West Africa Missions (GWAM), we’re working to provide clean water for drinking, washing, and cooking by drilling water wells in West Africa. This simple act gives people a better opportunity to live a healthy life, hope for the future, and stop the cycle of extreme poverty. In addition to drilling wells, we teach lessons about healthy living, environmental sustainability, building faith in God’s love through Christ, peacebuilding, sanitation, and women and children’s advocacy.
