Queer Spirit Village Water Project
The QueerSpirit Water Project has provided funds to install a bore hole in Ankyease, Ghana, and a hand dug well in Norbor, Liberia. On June 7, 2013 the Queer Spirit Water Project in Ankyease, Ghana was Commissioned, marking the successful completion of drilling, hand pump installation, and community training. The photos and videos below show how the projected moved forward in the community of Ankyease, Upper Bobikuma, Central Region, Ghana. On May 21, 2014 the hand dug well was completed in Norbor. The photos and videos below show how the projected moved forward in these West African communities. Thank you to Jerry Buie and all those in the Queer Spirit and Salt Lake City communities who have made this water project possible!

Norbor is a large but village in the Sewehn/Mecca area in Liberia, West Africa. Their existing water well is only partially functional and provides insufficient water in the dry season, leaving residents no opion but to use unclean water from a stream or a hand dug pit. Africa Heartwood Project heard about Norbor and decided to put a second well in the community, thus providing clean water all year to all residents. QueerSpirit sponsored this project with their fund raising events held in 2013 in Salt Lake City. Well installation and training provided by Universal Outreach Fondation.
INTRODUCING NORBOR VILLAGE TO QUEER SPIRIT
The well for Norbor village was successfully installed in April 2014, providing clean water for hundreds of Liberians!

Millions of people who live in rural Ghana and Liberia have a problem: The only water they can get is contaminated and makes them sick. Jerry Buie and the Queer Spirit community in Salt Lake City, Utah have the answer. Starting November 10, 2012 a series of drum circle fundraisers, in connection with media awareness campaigns, will be launched to raise the $7,000 required to provide the residents of one village in Ghana with a bore hole, and $2,000 for a hand dug well in a Liberian village. These new water sources will provide clean water for drinking, cooking, washing, and irrigating. Jerry and friends are engaged in a cause that will literally save lives and forever improve the quality of life for hundreds of people. Ankyease was the first village that will benefit from the QueerSpirit Water Project in Ghana. Norbor village in Liberia received the second water well.
As of 11.15pm March 2nd, at the close of the Benefit Concert, enough funds have been raised to complete the QueerSpirit Water Project in Ankyease ($7,000), PLUS finance another hand dug well in Liberia ($2,500-$3,000), which will take place in Ghangba Town, Liberia, in December 2013. We extend our most heartfelt thanks to all who donated time, goods, prayers, services, sweat (literally!) and money to make this community-based effort to beautiful success! Bore hole work will begin within a week!
