BENEFITING: Saha Global

EVENT DATE: May 30, 2016

Chelsea Schafer

THE STORY:

~ learning by doing ~ community centered design ~ empowering women ~ locally sourced products ~ durable design ~

I am incredibly excited and privileged to be traveling to Africa this summer with SAHA Global to participate in their Global Leadership Program bringing clean water to rural villages outside of Tamale, Ghana. 

  • Watch this video on how AWESOME SAHA is!  http://vimeo.com/103087207

Please help me in raising money towards developing a clean water business in Northern Ghana. For 3 weeks I will be working in a village and facilitating the women of the village in setting up, implementing and successfully running a water purification business. 

100% of your generous donation will go towards in-country equipment to build, monitor and maintain a rural drinking water system.

Your donation will help pay for the cost of treatment equipment: large drums that will hold the water during various stages of the process, taps, chlorine tablets, etc. Each tribal household will be secured with a safe storage container that they will use to store the water they purchase, preventing recontamination.

Background:

Saha Global empowers women in rural communities to solve their village’s need for clean water and electricity by providing business opportunities. To date we have launched 78 clean water businesses and 15 solar electricity businesses. 100% of these businesses are still in operation today. Currently, 40% of the population lacks access to clean drinking water.

People are CURRENTLY drinking fecally contaminated water. Saha partners with communities that drink from contaminated surface water sources, like rivers or ponds. Working with a team of four, we will train community-appointed women to use alum (a flocculant that reduces turbidity) and chlorine (abiocide) to treat the water they collect. These women entrepreneurs will sell the water to their friends and neighbors within the community. Once the treatment center is in place, the business is owned and operated by the women business owners.
