Ghana’s Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA) has a big task in front of them: Provide safe water to all the rural communities and small towns across the country. 

That kind of impact can’t happen without teamwork. That is why CWSA is creating a “Safe Water Culture” to emphasize that everyone has a role to play in safe water delivery. 

As part of this effort, GWC provided training to 25 CWSA staff from across Ghana. This training was delivered in partnership with Safe Water Network Ghana, which supplied the content, and facilitated with the support of CAWST. 

During the week-long training, participants worked together to perform risk assessments and water quality tests. They also went through a realistic investigation into the causes of water contamination. 

By the end of the training, 85% of participants said they had a plan to apply their learning. They will bring these new skills back to their communities, causing a ripple of change across the country.
