An Appraisal Of World Visions Approach To Sustainable Social Interventions In The Amasaman District.

ABSTRACT The main focus was World Visions water project in three selected communities (Kwashiekuma, Kojo Ashong and Odumase) in the Amasaman District. The study employed a mixed method approach using quantitative and qualitative methods to collect data from beneficiaries who were mainly school children and opinion leaders in the community. Collection of data was done using interviews and structured questionnaire. A sample size of 60 was used for Quantitative data and five (5) opinion leaders provided relevant qualitative data which helped to triangulate findings from quantitative results. Findings from the study were analysed using simple frequency tables for quantitative data and themes for qualitative data. From the study, World Vision’s sustainability approaches were; planning, community participation, training, maintenance and water treatment. Findings from the study showed that the community played a major role and was willing to support World Visions water project in the study areas to ensure sustainability. However major challenges such as funds to support and maintain projects, inadequate trained personnel to manage the project, lack of extensive community consultation in planning and project implementation and salty water supply affected sustainability. Generally, the study noted that World Vision water project in the study areas have not made major impact to the beneficiaries as well as the community as a result of the many challenges which had not been addressed. Findings from the study were mostly consistent with the literature but largely departed from World Visions sustenance approaches. The major weakness of the study was that it was conducted in few selected communities in the Amasaman District and that there is the need to conduct a comprehensive study with focused groups’ discussions to make concrete conclusions on the subject matter.
