Build A Water Pump

Dennis Appiah, United States

Growing up in Ghana West Africa was a daily straggle by it's self. I remember having to walk Miles to get clean water so my family and I could get some to drink and cook. Sometimes if we were lucky the water was clean and other times it wasn't, so we had to make the best out of whatever we had. We missed school sometimes trying to find water and other times we were too tired for walking about 10 miles carrying gallons of water. Therefore I have taken it upon myself to build some water pumps around my village so the people in the village wouldn't have to walk miles and the children wouldn't have to miss a single day of school.
