Help people in Ghana get access to CLEAN WATER and build a SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS with treating/selling clean water.
I will be going to Ghana this summer and work on a project with Community Water Solutions. We are a non-profit organization and need your help to further reach out!
"What CWS does is work with communities that are currently using surface water
sources, like ponds and rivers, and help them set up for-profit water businesses. CWS trains the women from the village how to use products that are available in the local market to treat water and make it safe to drink. They then sell that water to members of their village at an affordable price and use the money to
sustain the business. All of the revenues from the businesses stays in the community-CWS doesn’t see any of that money. We fundraise all of the capital equipment to build these water treatment centers, and train the women to run them, which takes about a month, but then they are completely run by the community and CWS just visits to monitor and check up on them. We will use only two products—alum (aluminum sulfide) and chlorine. The alum is a coagulant works to
remove the dirt particles and chlorine disinfects the water."
