Products, in partnership with The
Christian Centre, is helping to pioneer an international development
work in Northern Ghana called the King’s Village Project.
Serving a district of 160,000 people, where the
average person earns just 50p a day, the project adopts an integrated
development approach - providing clean water and sanitation, healthcare,
education and training and enterprise development in the Tolon-Kumbungu
district of Northern Ghana.
More than 30 local people are employed by the King's
Village Project. Between them they've helped develop a medical
centre providing the first doctor in the district, have provided
water and sanitation to in excess of 10,000 people, established
a school and begun to develop a micro-enterprise initiative.
Currently the project school has around 200 pupils
and a new intake of 35 pupils joins every year. The project’s
Medical Centre provides the only doctor amongst 160,000 people,
and was recently extended by the construction of a nutritional
centre at which severely malnourished children are treated.
The King’s Village Project has worked in partnership
with World Vision and the British Army to deliver clean water
sources, latrines and hygiene education to thousands of local
people, and has seen lasting transformation in the communities
