Before ICI’s intervention there was no safe drinking water in the community of Achiachen. After the construction of a new well and water tank however, children no longer have to travel long distances to fetch water before school.

Achiachen is a community in the Sewfi Wiawso district of Ghana with a population of 1,375, with 767 children. The community has a kindergarten, primary school and a junior high school.
