BENEFITING: Saha Global
As many of you know, I studied abroad in Ghana over the course of the Fall semester. While there, I was fortunate to be able to go back and visit Kathryn, Reggie, and Bri, who work for CWS in Ghana and Sakpalua, the community where my fellowship team and I built a water treatment center. I spoke with Lydia and Damu, the two women we trained to run the center, and they were still so happy to have the treatment center. They expressed to me how the treatment center had given them more economic freedom, improved the health of the community and how grateful they were that they had clean water. Through getting to know everyone who works for CWS on a deeper level, going back to visit the center my team implemented, and my own experiences from April, I know how dedicated everyone at CWS is to bringing clean water to those without. They are doing some amazing, meaningful, and effective work and I want to support that.
I would like to raise $1,500 by April 6, 2013, the day of my race. All donations are tax-deductible and will go directly to CWS to further their efforts. So, go ahead, click on the donate button to do your part to bring clean water to those without in Ghana!
Thanks for the support!
