The water crisis around the globe is a real one. Every 19 seconds, a mother loses her child to a water-related illness. Community Water Solutions (CWS) is a not-for-profit social enterprise dedicated to help solve the water crisis one community at a time.
My name is Bryan, and this summer, from June 19 to July 10, 2013, I will be joining three team members and CWS in efforts to implement a water treatment system at a village in Ghana. CWS has been working hard to locate communities in Northern Ghana which use surface water sources, like rivers and ponds which are often contaminated, so that fellows, like myself, can help them set-up a for-profit business based on the water treatment system. We'll train the women from the village on how to use products that are available in their 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. The best part is all of the revenues from the businesses stays in the community, CWS doesn’t see any of that money.
That's why I need your help. Each of us needs to raise a little over $3000 to cover the in-country and project implementation costs of the trip. Any contribution you give will help make a difference. Thanks for your help, a family in Ghana will appreciate you for it.
