CROWDRISING SINCE: Mar 19, 2011
Stuff About Me:

Who:

My name is Abby Watson, and I am a Junior in Civil Engineering at Virginia Tech.

What:

I am a fellow in the Community Water Solutions fellowship program.  Community Water Solutions is a not-for-profit organization that partners with rural communities in Northern Ghana to establish sustainable water treatment businesses. By implementing affordable water treatment businesses that treat, distribute, and store potable water, this organization has already provided safe drinking water for over 11,000 people in five communities.  As a part of a team of fellows, I will be responsible for helping implement a water treatment business in a rural community in Northern Ghana.

Where:

I will be living in Tamale, Ghana.  The community that my team will help will be located in Northern Ghana, a place where almost 1,000,000 people are exposed to turbid, unsafe drinking water everyday.

When:

The fellowship will take place from May 27th through June 17th this summer.

Why:

This fellowship will fulfill my passion of helping people while also serving as an hands-on learning experience applicable to my major.  I am extremely dedicated to this program and beyond excited about experiencing a new culture.  I have learned about the global water crisis throughout my coursework, and I am looking forward to making an effort to provide clean water, a basic necessity, to everyone.

How:

In order to implement a sustainable water business in Northern Ghana, my team must raise $10,000.  Individually, I must raise $2,500.  This sum will pay for my room and board, and, most importantly, it will provide the funds necessary to build the water treatment center.

If you would like to learn more about the program or why I am participating, feel free to e-mail me at abbyw89@vt.edu
