Greg Budd

THE STORY:

Hello to all! My name is Greg Budd, I'm a senior at Susquehanna University majoring in Economics & minoring in Earth and Environmental Science.

I'm excited and honored to have been accepted by Saha Global as a Field Representative for the 2016 summer session. I'll be spending 3 weeks in a rural village outside of Tamale, Ghana where our team will be creating and implementing a clean water business. We will then train women of the village to run and manage the enterprise. The water purification business will supply safe, clean water to the village and surrounding communities.

Why Donate?

A major problem in this region is that half of the population lacks access to safe drinking water. People in rural Northern Ghana drink from surface water, known as dugouts, that are stagnant and fecally contaminated. This results in severe health issues. For example, 15-25 % of children 5 years and younger are suffering from diarrheal disease. Globally, the third largest infectious killer is diarrheal disease due to dirty water supply. The solution is a clean water purification initiative that starts as a local business and then empowers the women entrepreneurs to manage and sustain it, therefore guaranteeing a future with a safe water supply.

Donations will exclusively go to the construction of the water purification business: supplies, equipment , in-country travel, etc., and to sustain the business for the next five years. Your donations will have an immediate impact on improving lives and guarantee a lasting affect. Every business initiated through Saha is still in operation to this day.

"Saha" means opportunity in Dagboni a local language spoken in Northern Ghana. I encourage you to donate and be part of a project that will benefit the lives of so many and give them the opportunity to live a healthier and happier life.

Thanks for all of your help and support! If you have any questions please email me at gmbudd@gmail.com
