Chapter Summary

Ashanti Development, is based on the friendship of three people: Martha Boadu, a Ghanaian living in central London; David Williamson, a volunteer WaterAid engineer; and the author, Martha's friend and neighbour. The work that Ashanti Development undertakes in villages like Gyetiase can be divided into three main parts: water, health and general development. The work always starts by providing clean water and follows this with training in health and hygiene. The training would probably be impossible to deliver for someone of a different culture, so they use a Ghanaian NGO called ProNet, founded and trained by WaterAid, for this purpose. It is aimed that the future of Ashanti Development will involve more work for the volunteers, either in United Kingdom or in Ghana.
