BENEFITING: Saha Global
EVENT DATE: May 25, 2015
I've been accepted as a Solar Field Representative through Saha Global, and so I will be traveling to Tamale, Ghana in June for 3 weeks! Saha Global is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that partners with rural communities in developing countries to establish sustainable social businesses that provide basic services, like water and electricity.
As part of my role as a solar field rep, me and 3 teammates each need to raise $2,950 in donations in order to purchase the solar equipment, and pay for our stay in the community. Not only will your donations be a great hands-on learning experience before I head off to South Africa later this summer, but it will establish a sustainable source of income and energy for marginalized communites.
All businesses implemented by Saha Global to date are currently in operation, providing necessary clean water and electricity to residents and providing a small income for the women who run them. Every dollar donated will have a lasting impact and continue to improve livelihoods of rural impoverished communities. Please help me raise the funds to make a huge difference in the lives of these women!!
