BENEFITING: Saha Global
EVENT DATE: Dec 26, 2013
I recently got accepting into the Community Water Solutions Fellowship Program! This coming winter I get the opportunity to travel to Ghana with other CWS fellows to partake in this awesome program.
Community Water Solutions is a small non-profit that helps women in Northern Ghana start sustainable clean water businesses. As fellows, we will help build water treatment centers and then train local women to run them. In Northern Ghana there are hardly any good sources of clean, safe drinking water. People collect brown mucky water from small dugouts that collect water during the rainy season. Through this program, we will implement a two step water treatment process that includes particle removal and disinfection of the water using materials that can be found in the local markets. We will also train women in the area to create a sustainable clean water business in which they can turn a profit. Since it began, CWS has launched 55 water businesses in Ghana and helped over 31,820 people, all of which are still up and running. I cannot wait to be a part of this great program.
As a fellow, I need to raise $3,000. This money will go towards all of the materials that we will be using to set up a water treatment facility and get everything going. Any donation would be amazing and every dollar will help go towards helping provide safe clean drinking water people. Thanks so much and have an awesome day!
