Lifetime Wells International has been operating in Ghana since 2006.
Over the last 17yrs, our operation has seen tremendous growth. Today, we employ an in-country management team, a full-time drilling team comprised of local drillers, and mechanics to install pumps and make sure they continue to function for years to come.
Thanks to your support, we have installed over 1,650 handpumps and miles of underground water mains.
Approximately 1,000,000 people now have access to safe drinking water!

Clean-Water Access in Ghana
Nationally, 36% of Ghanaian’s have access to a safely managed drinking water service.
In the rural areas where LWI works, nearly 20% of the population still relies on surface water or unimproved* sources to meet daily water needs.
Over 2.6M people rely on water that is contaminated and unfit to drink.
Although we have seen a lot of progress in Ghana, there is still a long way to go!
Our work is far from done and we'll continue until no one has to rely on contaminated surface water for survival.
