THE STORY:

I've recently accepted a fellowship with Community Water Solutions (CWS), a non-profit organization that partners with rural communities in developing countries to establish sustainable drinking treatment businesses. The businesses are owned and operated in the communities they serve, and use simple, affordable technologies to enable the treatment, distribution, and storage of clean and safe drinking water. The maintenance and operation of these water treatment businesses is funded by revenue from the sale of drinking water, while the capital necessary to establish them is generated from fundraising activities.

I will be working in Northern Ghana this summer with three other fellows where we will be responsible for implementing a CWS water business in a new village. Once established, the business will provide a permanent source of safe drinking water for 700-1000 people in Ghana, where half of the 1.8 million residents lack access to secure sources of drinking water. All CWS water businesses that have been implemented thus far are now consistently selling water and earning enough money not only to sustain the business, but also to provide a small income to the men and women who work there. Recently, a woman who runs the center in Kasaligu, Ghana, used her income to pay for her two youngest children to attend primary school - the first of her family to ever attend school.

Community Water Solutions is effectively combating the water crisis in Ghana, and I am very excited to be working with them. As mentioned earlier, the capital necessary to establish these water businesses is generated through fundraising and, as a fellow, I am responsible for my portion of the fundraising. The funds I raise will go directly towards the capital necessary for the water businesses my teammates and I will be establishing. I would greatly appreciate your help with this endeavour, every donation makes a difference!

If you have any questions about the project feel free to email me at clconner@usc.edu.
