THE STORY:

My name is Ann Ohkawa and I am currently studying psychology at Soka University of America. I am currently working on a senior thesis based around depression during emerging adulthood. Psychology, mental health and health in general has always been an interest of mine and I plan on going to Medical School after I complete my undergraduate schooling.

It has been a dream of mine, since I was 7 years old, to be able to go to Africa and help find a solution to the water crisis. As a child, I could only come up with trivial ways to help but this summer, I plan on going to Ghana with a small non-profit group called Community Water Solutions. This group brings clean drinking water to rural villages in Ghana.

CWS works in regions where drilling wells are not an option for the people of the area due to the lack of non-saline groundwater sources. Instead, they work with communities that are currently using surface water sources and help to build a for-profit water business. CWS train the women in the villages on how to treat the water with two products that are easily accessible in the area, alum (aluminum sulfide) and chlorine. The alum (coagulant) removes the dirt particles and chlorine disinfects the water. Then the water sell the water to the members of their village at a affordable price and use the money to sustain the business. All the revenues from the businesses stay in the community and CWS does not see any of the money.

This fundraiser is specifically to raise money for the equipment we will be using in Ghana to build these water treatment centers. I will truly appreciate any bit of donations. Thank you so much!
