Upcoming Activities


Protection Catchment of Weija Dam/Densu River and Barekese Dam/Ofinso River

As part of RUPFA’S effort to Protect Rivers and Water bodies, especially the Catchment of River Offin/ Barekessi Dam and River Densu/Weija Dam, a team of five (5) RUPFA members will visit Tomefa community along the bank of the Weija dam. The purpose of the visit is to identify the type of human activities within the community that negatively affects and pollutes the Weija Dam, sensitize the people on the alarming rate of the pollution and ways of mitigating the causes. 
 Background

  Tomefa is a periurban community within the Ga West district. The chief occupation of the community members of Tomefa is fishing whiles others are into farming. Tomefa is a mixed tribe community, yet dominated by the Ewe and Ada speaking group. It has a local administration made up of Chief, Headman and heads of committees. Majority of the men are into fishing whereas the women support them by selling their catch. This makes fishing a source of livelihood for majority of them. Most of the community members drink directly from the Weija dam without purification. RUPFA team will be visiting the Tomefa community for the first time to meet with the leaders and agree on a day for an educational campaign.
