Stuff About Me:

About Community Water Solutions (CWS)

CWS 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. 

CWS Fellowship Program

WHEN: May 27 - June 17, 2011

These water treatment business systems are installed by CWS fellows. The fellows utilize basic CWS water treatment techniques, local materials, and community help to first install the system; the fellows then train individuals from the community to sustain the treatment center. This component of the CWS methodology is essential in curing the global water crisis. By educating community members in system maintenance and simple economics, the water treatment business will be a long-lasting part of the village. In addition, this business allows the trained individuals to make a small profit; often this profit is used to send children to school, which is a privilege in Northern Ghana. Fellows are an integral part in empowering rural communities through drinking water treatment.

CWS Opportunity

The Community Water Solutions fellowship is an opportunity to fulfill my passion for helping others by providing access to everyday necessities that we too often take for granted. I am inspired to be a fellow in order to serve the global community while also broadening my life experiences in another culture. Through my coursework at Virginia Tech, I have become interested in water policies, social implications, and environmental impacts of water infrastructure. Specifically, I have learned that Civil and Environmental engineering is imperative for global water crisis solutions. With my primarily “textbook” engineering backgrounds, I am hoping to add a hands-on global perspective to my education through this program.  My involvement in this program will help eliminate water-borne diseases that nearly one million people are exposed to each day in Northern Ghana.

FUNDRAISING GOAL

In order to participate in this program, I must personally raise at least $2,500. As a team of 4, our total fundraising goal is $10,000. This sum will cover the cost of the materials used to create the water treatment system as well as the cost of room and board. 

Thank you in advanced for your time and donations!
