BENEFITING: Saha Global

Erin Walsh

THE STORY:

Hello, my name is Erin! I'm an environmental engineering undergraduate out of Dallas, and this summer I will be serving as a Saha Global Field Representative in Ghana for three weeks in June!

Saha Global empowers women in rural communities to solve their village’s need for clean water and electricity by providing business opportunities. They bring people like me from around the world to West Africa through their Global Leadership Program, where we train local women to launch profitable social enterprises. All these businesses' revenue stays in the community and is managed by the women entrepreneurs. To date, Saha Global has launched 84 clean water businesses , which serve 43,220 people. 100% of these businesses are still in operation today.

I am so excited to be serving in Saha's water program as a field representative this summer, where I will be doing the two things I am most passionate about: helping women, and providing clean water to those who currently lack access. However, part of my work as a field rep is raising the initial funds to start the business that I will help start. In order to travel this summer, I need to provide the $2950 necessary to start a business on top of travel expenses. Any donations are greatly appreciated both by me and the communities that these businesses will help!

Thank you for your generosity!
