Fishing Village on Lake Volta Works Together Towards a Sustainable Economy

The long stretch of muddy, bumpy road leading to Akrusu Saisi, ends in a remote fishing village nestled along the bank of Lake Volta in eastern, Ghana. Here you can meet women, children and fishermen working together to improve their living conditions, provide healthier livelihoods and a brighter future for their families. The villagers in Akrusu Saisi lead a simple life with no access to electricity or running water. Thanks to a partnership with the iF Foundation, Akrusu Saisi now benefits from a borehole well to access clean water and 4 modern fishing boats with proper equipment so fishermen can earn a sustainable living. This partnership with the people of Akrusu Saisi is the beginning of an iF Foundation hope to lift up an entire village through economic opportunity.
