Vea is a remote rural village in Upper East Ghana. There is no running water, no electricity and only one doctor for every 183,000 people. With no clean water source and rampant malnutrition, the life expectancy is less than 50 years old and high infant mortality rates mean that every year, 80,000 children do not live to see their 5th birthday. The average household makes $17/month. One Community is partnering with local churches and community resource centers to bring fresh water, financial stability, and improved education and health standards through training, biblical studies and more.
