Over the past two weeks, Nicholas has visited about twenty villages, and the good news is that almost all have now agreed to pay for water in order to get money to maintain their boreholes. Even Asuafo and Anansu, who initially refused to pay for water despite several training and advice sessions, have now accepted that this is the only option if they are to get safe, regular supplies of drinking water. The only villages which haven’t yet accepted the policy are Patese, Sesease and Kokoben.
