Stuff About Me:

About Community Water Solutions (CWS)

Community Water Solutions is a non-profit organization that strives create systems to allow for clean drinking water for small villages in remote areas in Africa.  The organization associates with the communities surrounding Ghana.  Their treatment process inclues tests, treating, distribution, and storage of water.

CWS Fellowship Program

WHEN: May 27 - June 17, 2011

The water treatment business systems are installed by us!  We utilize very basic CWS water treatment techniques, local materials, and community help to install the system.  After the system is installed we train individuals in the community to run the CWS treatment processes.  By educating the community members they are able to run the treatment process, give their community clean water, and make enough money to continue the process.  This is unique to other organizations in that we actually teach the members of the community rather than drop off equipment.  This allows for way better results! 

CWS Opportunity

The Community Water Solutions fellowship is an opportunity to serve the global community and give back to those who need it most.  I am used to doing volunteer work with The Big Event, Relay for Life, the Polar Plunge, and other local organizations.  This experience will put me in a completely different setting thus expanding my knowledge and experience on a global level.  I feel that I can use my knowledge I have learned from Virginia Tech in order to be successful in my mission in Ghana.  This hands on experience will further my knowledge of the global water crisis and give me a totally different perspective. Roughly fifty percent of the people of Northern Ghana do not have access to clean drinking water so I feel that I will be making a huge dent in the water quality problem.

GOAL

I must raise $2500 individually and my group of four must raise $10,000.  This money will cover all the supplies we need to test, treat, distribute, and store the water when we are in Ghana.  It also covers the all of our transportation, housing, and food while we are in Ghana.

 

Thank you so much for your time and consideration of my mission to go to Ghana and help those in need!
