The Rotary Club of Edina is supporting a water and sanitation project in the Upper East Region of Ghana. 

As part of the project, communities in the area would be provided with 23 deep wells, three small-town water systems, 300 new microflush toilets with hand-washing sinks for homes and one toilet block for a school in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
The project, estimated to cost just under $200,000, will impact more than 16,000 people in one of the least urbanized districts in the country. Data indicates that less than half of the region’s population has access to potable water today. 
The Edina Rotary Foundation will contribute $5,000 toward project, which is being spearheaded by the Rotary Club of Rocky Mount, Virginia, and the Rotary Club of Bolgatanga Goodwill in Ghana. The project is set to begin this month and be complete by August 2019.
