In 2015, Global Brigades and its partner, the Ghana Water Company, installed 3 new standpipes in Akra providing clean water to 1,398 people and 233 households.
Before the construction of water systems by Global Brigades, the people of Akra accessed water from 3 wells which were constructed over 70 years ago. Community members had to walk for about 30 minutes for one round trip to get water from these wells. As a result, some community members preferred to buy bags of water for drinking due to the salty nature of water from the wells.
