Two Bore Holes Successfully Installed - June 13, 2009

Your efforts to raise funds have found a successful end with the completion of the bore holes in two remote Ghanaian villages! Andy Jones, Director of AHP, visited the villages in May-June to participate in the final phases of installation, and witness the celebration event marking the end of the eight-month project. The chief and the residents of Alantaso and Krobidasiwakyi send their gratitude to everyone for having helped to provide the wonderful gift of clean water!

Post Concert Update - March 21, 2009

We would like to sincerely thank each of you supported this event and made it a success. It was such an awesome evening with great music and performances, a cool community vibe, and real interest in making a difference. Thank you!!!

Combined proceeds from the African Market (sponsored by DjembeDirect.com), Silent Auction (GRAACE), door entry donations, and prior donations from the community and DjembeDirect.com customers, provided the majority of funds required to complete the project. The gap in funding was covered by a temporary no-interest loan from DjembeDirect.com, which will be paid off as additional donations come in for this project. You may still make a donation here.

Funds from the Concert were transferred to Africa Heartwood Project - Ghana within a few days of the concert, but there was a slight delay in completing the drilling because banks in Ghana can sometimes be very difficult to work with, and there was an issue with getting a payment to Aquagro, the company handling the contract work on the bore holes. All donations and proceeds of the market and auction are being used for: geophysical surveys of the land to determine where wells should be drilled; mobilization of drilling rig and crew to remote village locations; drilling over 70 meters; installation of hand pump, concrete pad, and other hardware; testing of water; training of village water committee on management and maintenance of well.

Photos of the progress of this project will be posted here as they become available. Thank you for your continued interest, and for the wonderful support from our communities at the World Music Benefit Cocnert!
