BENEFITING: Saha Global
EVENT DATE: Jun 05, 2012
I have been selected as a Community Water Solutions 2012 Summer Fellow! The Community Water Solutions Fellowship Program is a three-week water education and leadership training experience in Northern Ghana. CWS partners with rural communities in developing countries to establish sustainable water treatment businesses. These businesses are owned and operated by the communities that they serve, and use simple, affordable technologies to enable the treatment, distribution, and storage of clean, safe drinking water.
As a fellow, I am responsible for raising $3,000 before traveling to Ghana in June. The funds I raise will go directly towards the capital necessary for the water business my teammates and I will be establishing in Ghana. This water business will provide a permanent source of safe drinking water for 700-1000 people in Ghana, where .9 of the 1.8 million residents lack access to improved sources of drinking water.
By donating, you will help change the lives of hundreds of people living without access to safe drinking water in Ghana. Every donation makes a difference! Thank you for your support!
