THE STORY:

I have recently received a fellowship position with Community Water Solutions, a non-profit organization that implements sustainable water treatment systems in villages throughout Ghana. I couldn't be more excited! As a fellow, it is my responsibility to raise a portion of the capital that will go towards purchasing all the equipment necessary to implement the water business through fundraising. All of this money will go directly toward the village for operation and maintenance of these water treatment businesses.
For three weeks this winter I will travel to Ghana with other CWS fellows, where we will be responsible for implementing a water business in a new village. Once implemented, the business will provide a permanent source of safe drinking water for an entire community. Not only will the water business provide clean drinking water, but it also provides a small income to the women that will learn to run the business once the CWS fellows return back to the states. In fact, one of the women that runs a center in Kasaligu, Ghana has used her income to pay for her two youngest children to primary school.
CWS is effectively combating the water crisis by providing permanent and sustainable water businesses in over 50 communities in Ghana already. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to help yet another community. I would greatly appreciate any help in this endeavor- every donation makes a difference!
