The group in Bayreuth currently deals with two projects in Ghana in the areas of “water Supply” and “Recycling”. On the one hand we aim to regenerate wells in different villages near Sunyani and Kumasi to enhance the supply of water. Furthermore, the village residents shall be trained in upkeep of the wells. Another project aims to improve the recycling of plastic waste, especially of water sachets by implementing waste bins at schools and teaching the students how plastic affects the environment. After collecting the plastic waste, it is intended to be brought to a recycling plant where it is converted into oil. In both projects we work together with our local members of TwB Ghana. In former projects we established an uninterruptible energy supply in the St. Martin De Porres Hospital in Eikwe/Western Region which is affected by irregular power outages. Additionally, we visited two schools in Akrofrom and worked out the consequences of contaminated water due to incorrect waste management. Furthermore, they explained the importance and benefits of recycling. In addition to these training courses, toilets were installed at one of those schools. These toilets don’t use water and help to improve the sanitary conditions of the school.
Our regional group currently meets every Monday via Zoom. If you are interested in our work, you are always welcome to join us by requesting the Zoom link via e-mail.
