Project Okurase strives to focus on the HIV/AIDS crisis in Okurase, a rural village in Ghana, West Africa, by providing assistance to orphaned and vulnerable children who are affected by HIV/AIDS in their families and villages. Water Missions International has been working with Project Okurase to identify ways of implementing a safe water source for the Okurase community. Next summer, a group of students from College of Charleston , The Citadel , and MUSC will travel to Ghana to continue this work, and also work together with community leaders on the resources needed for clean water and sanitation, and also on ways to maximize the technology.
