Hello family and friends!
I have been accepted into a fellowship program with Community Water Solutions. CWS is a small, non profit organization that implements clean water systems in Northern Ghana.
It is my responsibility and goal to raise the funds for this trip that will go directly to the supplies used when filtering the water. The business will establish a legitimite source of safe water for the community. I will be in Ghana for three weeks with other students and young professionals to help develop a sustainable water treatment business.
I want to spread awareness and get the word out about the global water crisis. 884 million people lack access to safe water supplies and every 19 seconds a mother loses her children to a water-related illness. This experience will be life changing and eye opening. I have the privilege to create change and be a part of a learning experience that will benefit numerous people.
I appreciate all donations and am so thankful to all of you for your support! Please note that in order to make an online donation, you have to have/create an amazon account. This may be inconvenient for you, if so feel free to write a check; you should make it out to "Community Water Solutions", please put my name (Claire Cohen) in the "memo" portion and have it sent to the following address:
