10-year-old activist brings clean water, flushing toilets to rural Ghanaian village

10-year-old Khloe Thompson is the creative, compassionate mind behind Khloe Kares: an industrious charity aimed at helping impoverished communities and the homeless. One of Khloe’s recent projects includes raising $12,000 to bring a borehole water pump and bathroom facilities to the rural village of Abidjan Nkwanta in Ghana. Before Khloe’s pump was installed, locals either had to pay the expensive price to build their own borehole or buy water from the government. While the running water and flushing toilets are for the community school, locals and come and buy water, giving those proceeds back to the school for continued water maintenance and supply. Additionally, the project’s free water access for school kids will hopefully incentive parents to send their kids to school.

Huge shout out to Khloe Kares for providing this on-going gift. See her project in action and meet the faces of the community in the PopSugar video, below.
