In the late seventies, the government of Ghana, with the help of CIDA (the Canadian International Development Agency), drilled wells and installed hand-operated pumps in many of its villages in an effort to provide a clean and convenient water supply. This film shows how international aid works, or fails to work, in a transfer of technology from a developed country to a Third World country. The film is full of anecdotes about pumps and people, which makes it delightful viewing for anyone who is simply interested in learning more about Africa.
