The people of Baga Yili were filled with great joy to have a deep well in there village! They are just at a point in the year when many of the families relocate temporarily just for lack of water at their homes. It was just in time that the well has come. Now they have hope that they will no longer have to relocate each year due to lack of water. the joy was indeed great!
Baga Yili is a rural village in Ghana. the people of this village are also a group of gonja-dagoma people called the “kpareba” and they live with the fulani settlers. our partners have been working here since 2018. there are 670 in the village and now 5 families (25 people) who are believers. There was a desperate need for clean water here. The village had no well and the people from this village walk almost 3 km to draw water several times a day from an open water pond. the well will be open to all the people regardless of faith. the ministry team works to teach about clean water (some believe it is witchcraft that makes them sick when they drink the dirty water).
