Well Maintainance Training and Tre’s Documentary

One main aspect of this campaign to bring clean drinking water to the Triumph International School is that of teaching a group of women at the school how to maintain the well if there are any mechanical problems once it has been installed. This would empower them, by making this well and the school self sufficient and giving these ladies a change to learn a new skill and trade they most likely will not get the chance to in everyday Ghanaian life. My good friend Tre Shallowhorn is a filmmaker and graduate student at NYU and agreed to help document the process of this well and the people at the school. Here are some shots of Tre and I interviewing various people around campus.

  1. hi,what is the procedure to visit nzulezu as a group?

    • Hi Michael,

      Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Im not sure about procedure, as far as visiting Nzulezu. What I did was I stayed at the Beyin Beach Resort which is right near Nzulezu… ( By email: beyinbeachresort@yahoo.com By phone: +233 242 188240 or +233 245 433790) then we went to this office of sorts to pay a fee and then took a canoe ride for about 45 minutes into the wilderness. You arrive at the village, meet with the chief most likely and then meet the people who were generally curious about visitors. Hope that helps!
