BENEFITING: Saha Global
Hey folks in cyberland! I need money for some work experience (you got to buy it these days). All jokes aside, I was selected as a fellow for an awesome non-profit that establishes clean water businesses in Northern Region, Ghana. Part of my job is to raise some funds so my team can have the necessary supplies for implementing our project.
Want to keep reading? Cool, I will give you a little more info about CWS and what I will be doing as a fellow. So you may or may not know that a lot of water projects implemented abroad aren't always the most thought-out. They use infrastructure that breaks or filters that go bad. CWS is pretty nifty because they use local products that clean the water and simple storage systems. As a fellow, I will be training women entrepreneurs how to clean the water and sell it to their village for a profit. CWS monitors businesses for five years after creation and so far, 100% of these businesses are still running.
Sweet! Three cheers for sustainable development that involves the local people! It's kinda what I am all about. Help me experience this model hands-on without putting my family in debt. Only about a year until I am searching for an actual job in this industry...yikes. Comment or contact me if you have questions about the global water crisis, CWS, Ghana, what your money will be used for, or anything. CommunityWaterSolutions.org might be able to answer some of those questions as well.
Ok, so you think you might want to open those wallets? All donors will get the link to my blog as I share what I experience during the 5 weeks that I spend traveling in West Africa (but let's face it, everyone on my facebook will also get that link). Donate $20 or more and I will send you a postcard from Ghana!
One thing to note is that this platform charges a small fee on each donation. If you want 100% bang for your buck, write a check to Community Water Solutions with my name in the memo.
