Project Summary

Barclay Farm Q#3 is in the central and swamp part of Barclay Farm. It is also near the Firestone plant's main road, right after Kayata Security Guard Services and not too far from the main road leading to the Grand Bassa County. The community is large in population and mostly depends on petty trading and farming for their livelihood.

Despite the location of this part of Barclay Farm, with a well-paved street nearby the Firestone Rubber Company, the need for safe drinking water was a challenge for them until now, when Lifewater intervened to bring in a new well and hand pump for them.

"We are right on the way to a good and healthy life," said one old woman, Ma Yamah Kokollo, as she joyfully thanked the Lifewater's Health and Hygiene team for the training and the new well and pump. All of the villagers in the training promised to follow the preventive measures to live a healthy life.

Barclay Farm was established during the presidency of Arthur Barclay in 1904 by Old Man John Garyeazohn, a local Bassa chief who settled in this part of the Cotton Tree. The president requested for this place to be used as his personal farmland from the tribal chives headed by Oldman John Garyeazohn. The land was given to president Barclay who started his own farm and named the place Barclay Farm.

Since then, this part of Cotton Tree has become inhabited by many people and is home to over 10,000 inhabitants. It is under-developed with no basic social services -- not to even talk about safe drinking water.

Arthur Barclay, who was the 13th president of Liberia, from 1904 to 1912, was not able to open up this place at the time to give the people some basic Life needs. Upon his death, the chiefs regained their land and decided to give it out to other citizens but the name Barclay Farm remains.
