June 19, 2015 - The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hon. Hanna Tettah today dedicated 10 water projects in Awutu Senya District which were funded by Ghana Guiness Breweries Ltd. and Diageo (Guiness partent company in London, UK).  The 6 boreholes equipped with handpumps and 4 mechanized schemes are distributed throughout the district.  The Hon. Miinister stated "It was our desire to see the amendment of the Customs Act to drive businesses to reinvest in the communities they source from locally. Guinness Ghana Breweries Limited has set pace for other businesses to follow by this gesture. The rippling effect of such investment is enormous and translates into government’s policy of encouraging local content across the value chain”, she said.

Also present at the ceremony were Rita Rockson from Ghana Guiness and Minta Aboagye and Jim Niquette from WATER.  Speaking on behalf of the beneficiary communities, Nai Kweku Orsadu, Chief of Bawdjiase, thanked GGBL for the gesture. “We the chiefs and people of the communities will ensure the proper use and maintenance of these projects and also requested that the other companies reach out to the other communities in the Awutu Senya district”, he said.
