About The Village
Teekpeh is a village situated in the depth of the Central Rivercess District forest, Rivercess County, in rural Liberia. Teekpeh is one of Liberia’s most isolated and least developed villages, where villagers live on subsistence farming, having little or no communication with the rest of the world except visitors who travel by four-wheeled drive vehicles on a track road to the village.
Due to the living conditions they face, villagers have no clean drinking water and their only option is to fetch water from a contaminated creek.
The creek used for all domestic activities such as drinking water, washing clothes, bodies, vegetables, and domestic implements, result in serious water borne diseases and early death. The nearest medical clinic is a six-hour walk from their village.
Our Mission in Teekpeh
During an assessment visit to Teekpeh town by four members of AWF in June 2012, in discussion with the villagers, they requested our help in providing clean water, sanitation, school and a medical clinic and a means of acquiring skills that will help provide them with basic living in their village.
The AWF has decided to help the villagers, but we need your help to do this.
Why You Should Get Involved
Think how important safe, clean water and latrine are for you! Villagers of Teekpeh town do not have access to such basic necessities.
AWF has raised funds to provide a deep borehole, hand operated water supply. We need more funds to provide latrines and a school.
Please help us raise funds
