About Water Brigades
Water Brigade volunteers assist in designing and implementing water systems to prevent communicable illnesses in communities through 10 day Water Brigades in Ghana. Student volunteers can either join an existing Water Brigades chapter on their campus or create their own chapter and recruit other volunteers. Our in-country team members work with water experts and community leaders to design large scale water systems for the entire community. Once the water system is blueprinted, volunteers work side-by-side with community members to implement and provide the education for maintenance through the creation of community water counsels.
