BENEFITING: Saha Global
My name is Morgan and I am a recent graduate of the University of Portland who is raising funds for a 3 week summer fellowship with the non profit organization Saha Global. I will be traveling to Africa this June with Saha Global to participate in their Global Leadership Program bringing electricity to rural villages outside of Tamale, Ghana.
For 3 weeks I will be working in a village and facilitating the women of the village in setting up, implementing, and successfully running a solar electricity business. For some perspective, in Northern Ghana only 10% of Saha's partner villages have access to power and people travel up to 2 hrs into town to charge electronics. These villages need electricity and this is the perfect opportunity to help bring this much needed asset to them.
How will your donation help?
100% of your donation will go towards in-country equipment to build, monitor and maintain the solar power system and provide the females of the village the initial infrastructure to run a profitable solar business. I will be doing the dirty work, but I just need your help to get me there! Once established, the business will provide a long term source of electricity for their community.
If you'd prefer to send a check, please write my name (Morgan Mueller) in the memo and send it to:
