Understanding the true impact of our Water of Life programmes in Ghana
Case study 15 APR 2015
Since 2007 Diageo's Water of Life programme has provided clean, safe drinking water to over 10 million people in 18 countries in Africa. As part of our refreshed Water Blueprint, our work on our Water of Life programmes will intensify in water stressed areas that are part of Diageo's business.
In Ghana, our Water of Life programmes have supported over 500,000 beneficiaries in more than 60 communities across the country. Looking to understand the stories behind the numbers, Guinness Ghana recently conducted an assessment of this work to determine its overall impact.
Aside from providing access to potable water, it was found that the Water of Life projects contribute to health care delivery, support livelihoods and local jobs, empower women in their communities and contribute immensely to girl child education.
