“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world!”
Women Making a Difference began its roots in 2003
Founder Nancy Bolton
WMAD represents an amalgamation of women from all walks of life, background and ages sharing common purpose to make a unique impact in helping one another around our world! The process began as we stepped forward into our on going vision as individuals and collectively making a difference. Our women truly care to step back and grasp the possible, make plans in faith knowing we can do projects beyond ourselves and with God all things are possible. We are grateful to so many who support our vision for change. The vision was clear to bring clean water to Africa. Our process brought us to partnership with International Needs Ghana also gaining experiences with Hopeline Institute Ghana.
We were honoured as a team of seven to represent Women Making a Difference to fulfill and measure our project, site seen “Coins for Clean Water” Making Change for the remote village of Kanuwloe a village of 800 residents Ghana, Africa. Their only source of water was from a distance disease infested pond also used by cattle. Tainted water kills more people every year than all forms of violence including war. WE need to end this daily process for women walking endless miles every day with their children to carry a water jug infested with disease. Think about it… clean water is life, existence and independence. Children are rid of this long 4 a.m. chore to fetch water with mom along dangerous bush paths. They get to school on time and are able to stay awake and get educated, arising from poverty. Women are enabled to add value to their home, exercise their skills to develop goods to market. Imagine what would your lifestyle be like without clean water? Do we realize how fortunate we are with the basics of life? Imagine your life without.

Hopeline Ghana and Bev Dugard. Hopeline brought us to an uncommon perspective of business with entrepreneur’s committed to helping themselves with proper resources in training, finance, in support of independence. June 2011 conference in Chatham funded a machine to assist the Women at the Palm Oil Nut Factory in Accra Ghana and added funding to completion of our second water project, Kpevikpo Sept. 2011.
To date we are funding water projects in Ghana Africa helping women and children one village at a time.
The Difference is You!
