BENEFITING: Saha Global
EVENT DATE: May 08, 2017
Hello Everyone, My name is Zach Solomon and I'm a student at Occidental College studying international relations. I've recently accepted a fellowship with Saha Global, meaning that this May and June I'll be working with women entrepreneurs in Northern Ghana to build Sustainable Water Businesses that can provide a lasting source of clean water and economic empowerment for these communities. Forty percent of the population lacks access to clean drinking water, with even higher percentages in the North. Many people are currently drinking contaminated water which is the 2nd leading cause of death in children in the country. Saha Global has been working in Northern Ghana since 2008 and has created 128 businesses, 100% of which are still in operation. This is a testament to the commitment of the entrepreneurs and the work of Saha to support them. This summer I will be training and supporting women to use Flocculants and Chlorine tablets to purify the water, as well as assisting them in setting up businesses to bring this water to market. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me, Thank You!
