The Gift of “Sachet” Water

The Gift of “Sachet” Water

At the Egyam Children’s Home, 78 orphaned children get to earn an education, learn about the Gospel, and form a family with each other. Thanks to the Sisters who run the home these precious children have a place to call home.
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. With your ongoing help, we can help the Egyam Children’s Home produce sachet water on a large scale for their surrounding community!

Sachet Water Production Underway!

December 2021

The Egyam Children’s Home is on its way to producing sachet water for the community! Thanks to your selfless giving, we were able to purchase a reverse-osmosis machine and begin the construction process of where the sachet water production will take place. Accomplishments thus far include drilling a borehole, establishing the pumping machine, fixing doors, windows, and tiles, painting the building, and finishing the security post. The next steps are to transfer the reverse-osmosis machine to the production room and work on the registration of the sachet-water project to the Food and Drugs Board Authority.

The Children’s Home and the Diocese of Sekondi-Takoradi express their sincere appreciation to the almighty God and YOU as they work their way towards self-sustainability.
