The clinic project is our largest project to date. Our goal is to build a new clinic and improve healthcare for the people of Ullo and surrounding communities. The Ghanaian government and Ullo community have expressed tremendous support for this project, and we are excited to continue working with them. Upon completion, the clinic will be capable of serving a community of 10,000-20,000 people. Construction of the clinic is expected to begin within the current year.

The clinic project is split into six teams. Three are handled by ISU, and three are handled by KNUST.

ISU Teams:


The EWB-ISU Clinic Electrical team has been busy researching photovoltaic power systems as a source of backup power for the clinic.


Clinic Sanitation is finalizing its design proposal for the unfinished restroom facility. After that, they will switch to researching three-tank septic systems for the clinic.


The Clinic Drainage team is finishing the design of the water drainage system for the clinic. After that, they will begin researching methods of remotely measuring the water levels in the clinic water towers.

Rainwater  Catchment: 

Designing and installing a rainwater catchment and drip irrigation system for the school of Ullo. The rainwater catchment system will collect water during the rainy season to later be used for agricultural purposes

 Shea Nut:

 We are working with the women of Ullo to develop methods to help extend the production period for shea nuts to help these women improve their business.


KNUST Teams:


KNUST Clinic Electrical students are researching Power Packs which can immediately provide backup power to the clinic in the case of a power interruption. They will also be researching diesel generators this semester.


Clinic Sanitation team is researching biodigester systems as an alternative to traditional 3-tank septic systems for the clinic.

Water Distribution:

KNUST Clinic Water Distribution Team will be designing the two water towers that will provide water for the clinic.

Rainwater Catchment:

 The KNUST team has implemented the first phase of this project: installing gutters on the school and laying pipes to 4 tanks that will be used to help irrigate year-round.
