THE STORY:

I've recently accepted a fellowship with Community Water Solutions (CWS), a non-profit organization that partners with rural communities in developing countries to establish sustainable drinking treatment businesses. The business are owned and operated in the communities they serve, and use simple, affordable technologies to enable the treatment, distribution, and storage of clean, safe drinking water. The maintenance and operation of these water treatment businesses is funded by revenue from the sale of drinking water, while the capital necessary to establish them is generated from fundraising activities.

From May 28th until June 19th I will be working in Ghana with three other fellows where we will be responsible for implementing a CWS water business in a new village.The business will provide a permanent source of safe drinking water for 700-1000 people in Ghana, where half of the 1.8 million residents lack access to secure sources of drinking water. All CWS water businesses that have been implemented thus far are now consistently selling water and earning enough money not only to sustain the business, but also to provide a small income to the men and women who work there.

Please help me raise money for this amazing project. This is something I am so excited and passionate about. If you have any questions at all please contact me at kplescow@bu.edu. 

If you are interested in being a corporate sponsor (which would allow your logo to be shown in pictures with the project) please dont hesitate to contact me. It is great CSR for your company and also tax deductible!!
