COB-A industries Ltd, producer of Standard Mineral Water, has decided to climax activities marking 15 years of supplying good drinking water to Ghanaians by constructing a borehole for the Pamela Bridgewater Children Village project.

The borehole, which is in fulfillment of the company’s corporate social responsibility, is worth GH¢22,000. It will be constructed at Tampion in the Savelgu/Nanton District of the Northern Region, and provide water to the village and the surrounding areas.

Making the announcement over the weekend in Accra, the General Manager of COB-A Industries Festus Aido said, “It wouldn’t have come at a better time to support a deprived generation of hardworking girls who are determined to succeed in life.”

He said his office’s equipment and team are only waiting for the mandate and direction from the Bridgewater project to commence work on the construction of the water supply system.

Mr Aidoo disclosed that COB-A Industries will soon set up factories in the Northern Region, and “offer employment opportunities to these hardworking girls”.

On his part, Bernard Anvuur of Kunata Voluntary Organisation, the NGO handling the Bridgewater Project, thanked the management of COB-A Industries and used the opportunity to invite other corporate bodies who want to set up structures in the village.

The project is aimed at curbing the migration of girl head-porters popularly known as ‘kayayei’ from the north to the south, where they are exposed to all sorts of dangers.
