EVENT DATE: Dec 28, 2011
I am raising money with Community Water Solutions to create a sustainable clean water business in a remote village in Ghana! I will be traveling to Ghana in the winter to set up this business! Learn more about community water solutions and the fellowship that I am participating in at http://www.communitywatersolutions.org
This winter I will be taking part in a 3-week fellowship program with a non-profit corporation, Community Water Solutions (CWS). CWS works in rural communities in developing countries to establish sustainable water treatment businesses. The enterprise is unique in that by cooperating with village members, it creates for-profit water businesses that are owned and operated by the communities themselves. Each business uses inexpensive technologies that are available in Ghana itself to enable the treatment, distribution, and storage of clean, safe drinking water. As a fellow, I will spend three weeks in Ghana, working in a team of four to set up a business in one remote village.
Did you know 1 in 8 people around the world lack access to safe drinking water? In the Northern Region of Ghana, where I will be this winter, over half of the population lacks access to safe drinking water. Help me do something about it! Donate to this page and your money goes towards making a real difference!
