Likpe-Abrani, a small town with current population of 4,000 is about 35 km from Hohoe, the District capital. The community has 4 boreholes serving 4000 people. However, as per Ghana standards one borehole serves 300 people hence the 4 boreholes serve only 1200 people leaving a deficit of 2800 people.
In view of the water deficit in the community HIOTWM has conducted feasibility studies to test the four (4) existing boreholes in the community to see if those boreholes can be mechanized to fully supply water to the community.
A first step in the project implementation is to establish the adequacy and sustainability of the water source.

Some assistance has been provided to Tokuroano villagers to produce batik (tie-dyed) fabrics on a small scale as a cottage industry. This support will be increased as funds become available.
Land has been given by the Tokuroano village chiefs for a vocational center. Once this center is established, skills such as dressmaking and carpentry will be developed to provide villagers with income and the capability of self-reliance.
