Cocoa Abrabopa Association (CAA) constructed 25 mechanised boreholes estimated at GH¢845,700 in 25 cocoa-growing communities throughout Ghana as part of their Community Development Projects.

The borehole facilities will make potable water accessible to inhabitants of the cocoa-growing communities, complementing government’s efforts in providing access to water and sanitation for all in pursuit of SDG 6.

In all, 40,ooo people living in communities in Ashanti, Brong-Ahafo, Central, Eastern, Volta and Western Regions have benefited from the projects.

Project funding is from a portion of the premium that CAA receives for the sales of UTZ and Rainforest Alliance-certified cocoa beans sold on the international market.
