This is similar to the life of the children who live at the Egyam Children’s Home in Ghana which is home to 78 orphaned children. They get to earn an education, learn about the Gospel, and form a family with each other. Thanks to the Sisters who run the Egyam Children’s Home these precious children have a place to call home.
During a trip to Ghana, Deacon Rick met with the Sisters who were very eager to discuss the possibility of becoming self-sufficient through a unique and effective income-generating way…
Drinking water sold in plastic bags, also known as sachet water, is growing rapidly in West Africa. The Sisters saw this opportunity and ran with it. Currently the Egyam Home has two water wells on its property. One of these can be converted and used commercially to produce sachet water on a large scale. Deacon Rick was touched by this way of helping the Egyam Children’s Home, but couldn’t say yes at the time. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit our world our opportunity to help again was sadly delayed.

Now the time has come!
We are ready to focus on helping the Egyam Children’s Home produce sachet water on a large scale for their surrounding community. Can you help them provide for their family?
Together we can purchase a KOYO machine for the Home which bags water in small size packets to sell. The returns will greatly surpass this initial investment once the Home is selling these water packets.
“If we are able to start this water facility, the proceeds will help us care for and educate the children God has placed under our care,”–Sister Mary Gladys
It is up to us to keep this house a home for these children. Making ends meet at the Egyam’s Children’s Home is a struggle. Together we have the chance to keep the Egyam’s Children’s Home open and change the lives of many orphaned children. This water facility is not only a blessing for the community, but an outward symbol of gaining self-sufficiency.
Proceeds from the sale of sachet water will directly benefit the children of Egyam Home.
