Thank you for visiting my page! My name is Stephanie Wilson, and I am a rising fourth year at the University of Virginia majoring in Anthropology and Foreign Affairs with a minor in African Studies. I have recently been accepted into a fellowship program with a non-profit corporation, Community Water Solutions, which partners with rural communities in developing nations to build sustainable water treatment facilites. These businesses are owned and operated by women in the community using low-cost local technologies. Unlike other organizations, CWS works in conjunction with the people in the communities that they serve, empowering them to take control of their own water quality.
This summer, I will be working in Northern Ghana with three other fellows, where we will be responsible for implementing a new CWS water business. While the maintenance and operation of these businesses will be funded by revenue from the sale of drinking water, fundraising is necessary for the equipment to initially build the sanitation center. Therefore, I am attempting to raise $3000 so that other fellows and I can build a water treatment business from the ground up, seeing the project to fruition and leaving behind a system that can be sustained for many years to come.
With your help, we can continue to fight the global water crisis and bring pure drinking water to families in need. Every little bit counts and I am extremely grateful for your donation!
