BENEFITING: Saha Global
This is a fundraiser to help send myself and four other students to Tamale, Ghana this summer, in order to work for the non-profit corporation, Community Water Solutions (CWS).
A water crisis runs rampant in Ghana- .9 of the 1.8 million residents lack access to improved sources of drinking water. Through CWS we would be providing the people of a rural African village access to clean water, that they could then sustain themselves.
Community Water Solutions is a non-profit organization whose mission is "to implement community-level water treatment businesses in communities of the developing world that:
1. are run by members of the community,
2. provide clean water for residents of that community,
3. generate economic growth and
4. empower women in the community."
