BENEFITING: Saha Global
EVENT DATE: Dec 28, 2016
Hello friends, family, and mentors!
I am here asking for your help in fundraising the initial investment for a new water purification business for a village in Northern Ghana. Here, the major water source for the community comes from large earth dugouts that fill with rain water during June and July but remain stagnant throuhgout the year. The villagers have little choice but to drink from this fecally contaminated water and suffer from water-borne illnesses like diarrhea or meningitis. Saha Global is a program that puts into action a simple solution and I'm asking for your help in starting this process for the families in Ghana!
What is Saha Global?
Saha Global is a non-profit NGO that offers a simple solution to the water challenges that these villagers face. Saha Global partners with local women entreprenurs to set up a water purification business that uses locally sourced materials and simple water treatment methods to provide clean and reliable drinking water for the families in the community. The program has successfully started up 93 business since 2008 and 100% of them still serve the 5,814 families within those communities.
Why did I start?
Saha Global connects with both my passion to serve others and a deep sense of personal meaning. I want to get outside of my own community and act on my desire to serve. Saha Global is a straightfoward and long lasting solution to one of the most pressing problems for many in northern Ghana. This will not only provide cleaner water for so many families but also empower women, improve quality of life, and invest in the future of the community.
How will your donations help?
100% of your generous donation will go towards the start-up cost of chlorine tablets, storage drums, water containers, taps, and training of woman entrepreneurs! The system will benefit more than 500 lives in the village I will working in this winter and so many more in the years to come.
If you would prefer to send me a check, please write my name (Louis Lin) in the memo and send it to:

Once again, I want to thank you for helping me being able to serve the community in Ghana! If you have any questions about Saha Global, my experiences, or just ANYTHING, don't hesitate to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
