Have you ever had to go a day without water or had trouble finding a source of clean water? Probably not. However, illness from unclean water is a major cause of death in developing countries.
I am raising money for a trip to Ghana. While in Africa I will be working with Community Water Solutions, a non-profit organization, to set up a sustainable water treatment system. By establishing a sustainable source of clean water we will alleviate much suffering.
We plan to use products that can be found at the market near our village to treat the water. Once the system is in place my team will work to educate 2 women in the tasks of running the water treatment system and managing finances. When we leave these two women will be able to run a small business providing clean, safe water to their community.
The money that I raise will be used for room, board, project costs (project materials, water quality tests & lab materials, fellow training & educational materials, translator salaries), and in-country travel.
Any contribution is helpful and will be greatly appreciated. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Thank you for your consideration!
