Nankpanzoo, a small community off the Tamale – Bolgatanga Road right after the roadside village called Nabogo, is a rural community with a population of about 400 people, mostly farmers. The major sources of water for the community include, rainwater harvesting, hand dug wells and streams. These sources of water resulted in many sickness and diseases for the community members. This is because they share some of these water sources with animals and other creatures.
It is based on these that a borehole project was initiated in the Nankpanzoo community, to provide them access to clean and healthy water supply. A single-unit hand pump borehole was constructed in the North Western side of the Nankpanzoo community between the community school and the Fulani community in Nankpanzoo.
The borehole was completed, commissioned and handed over to the Nankpanzoo community in 2010 under the supervision of the District Assembly. A water and sanitation committee, made up of the community members was set up to ensure the maintenance and sustainability of the borehole.
