In Dennis’ own words, “Personally, Bright Water Foundation has been a springboard in helping me fulfill a mission to serve my fellow Ghanaians in a time of need, to be a light in the darkness to my people. The communities receiving this practical safe water education from BWF can now boast of good health and more productive time, which translates to more income and healthy children in clean, safe schools.”
