BENEFITING: Saha Global
EVENT DATE: Dec 07, 2016
Hi I'm Yu! I'm a sophomore at Mount Holyoke College.
Did you know 800,000 people in Northern Region of Ghana lack access to clean drinking water? People in Ghana are currently drinking contaminated water that causes various health hazards. Saha Global, a non-profit organization, wants to make a difference! Saha Global (http://sahaglobal.org/) has pitched 93 clean water business to provide clean water to 46,510 people. 100% of them are in operation! They have empowered 234 women entrepreneur in Ghana. In the upcoming winter break, I will go to Ghana as a Saha Global Representative to pitch sustainable clean water business. As Saha Global Rep, I will be working with a village in North training women entrepreneurs in Ghana to clean water with affordable local sources and to sell clean water at low price to their community. Also, I will be assisting them with business planning to ensure the clean water business is set up in a sustainable way. The capital to pitch a clean water business is collected by fundraising.
How will your donation be used? Your donation will pay for the cost of water treatment equipment: large drums, taps, chlorine tablets, etc. You will also be providing each household with a safe storage container that they will use to store the water they purchase, preventing recontamination. One clean water business will help 700 - 1000 people to access to clean water.
