1. Describe how the project will benefit the community or address a community need? How many beneficiaries are anticipated?

Nkwantakese Medical Laboratory will benefit a total number of 8000 people living at Nkwantakese and its habitat for humanity. There is the need to add the laboratory to the Nkwantakese Clinic which lacks it and Lab tests are often referred

Mfrekrom Health Post will benefit a total number of 3000 people living and around Mfrekrom. Mfrekrom been the fastest growing community in Asunafo South District of Ahafo Region has neither clinic nor health post hence the need to get them one.

Abonsrakrom Community Library will benefit a total number of 3500 directly and indirectly to the people of Abonsrakrom. The community has nursery up to junior high school yet no library nor a single computer and this has necessitated the need to convert the third container into a library.
