Hands on The World Green Community Hub

Fievie is a Hands on The World Green Community Hub. The school in the village has been chosen to become a model hub of teaching sustainable methods of food and water security. We are very happy to be working on this with Rachael Poulson, founder of Hands On The World Global.

This is a very important step forward in providing a source of clean drinking water to the village. Up to now the villagers of Fievie have taken their water for cooking and drinking and washing from a pond shared with cattle; the cattle urinate and defacate in the pond, causing life threatening conditions.

Fievie has not been able to get support for a new water supply from the local assembly nor the govenrment of Ghana nor the charitable work by Rotary International and other charitable organisations because it has not fallen into the correct catchment area.

We need to raise US $10,000 to implement a Rainwater Harvesting scheme from the school roof. If you can help us please contact us.

There are two films, one a general interview with the Chief of Fievie, and one a song about the situation regarding the water:
