Lowara helps to improve the quality of life in the village of Fume Avatime in Ghana, West Africa, building and sending a submersible pump, motor, and control box to the village of Fume Avatime in the Volta Region of Ghana, West Africa.

Fume Avatime is a small village of about 60 homes and 600people. They have been getting water from a stream that flowed through the area and it was not always clean. They now have a well that, with the use of the Lowara pump, will supply good clean water into their homes and their medical clinic. Included with the pump and well is a 1000 gallon storage tank and flow control valve and piping to the main streets in the village. Each homeowner will provide their own connection to the main line.
