BENEFITING: Saha Global

Elijah Persad-Paisley

THE STORY:

Hello, Everyone!

My name is Elijah Persad-Paisley and I'm a second-year undergraduate student at New York University studying biochemistry on the premedical track. I've recently accepted a fellowship with Saha Global, a nonprofit organization whose goal is to provide safe drinking water to communities around the world that don't have access to it.

This winter break, I will have the opportunity to travel with the Saha Global team to the Northern Ghana for 3 weeks to help set up water filtration businesses for the women entrepreneurs there. In Northern Ghana, nearly half of the population lacks access to clean drinking water. The people who live in the village I will be working in are forced to drink from fecally contaminated surface water sources called "dugouts". As a direct result, nearly 25% of children under the age of 5 are suffering from diarrheal disease, the second leading cause of death for this age group. 

How will your donation help?

100% of your generous donation will go towards the equipment necessary to build, monitor, and maintain the drinking water system and provide the women in the area the initial framework to run a profitable water purification business. I'll be doing the dirty work, but I just need your help to get things started!

Please watch the video on the left to learn more about what this organization does and what I'll be doing in Ghana. 

If you have any questions, please reach out!
