Overview

Asaafa is located near the coast in the Central Region of  Ghana.  People in Asaafa are primarily dedicated to farming (pinapple, tomato, cassava) and fishing. The closest clinic is in the community of Edumafa, a 45 minute walk away. The community has some public latrines, but due to poor maintenance, many people choose open air defecation instead..  People in Asaafa get water from various standpipes within the community, some private, some public. Community members have access to school from kindergarten through junior high-school.
