My name is Kelly Broen and I am a sophomore at Emory University. I am majoring in Human Health and Quantitative Social Statistics and am very interested in public health. This summer, I will be going to the northern region of Ghana with a nonprofit organization called Saha Global. In the local language of Dogbani, Saha means opportunity. This is fitting being Saha Global provides a community with so many opportunities! Over half of the people living in the northern region of Ghana drink fecally contaminated water. With Saha Global, I will be helping to build a water filtration apparatus that is sustainably made with products that can be purchased locally. The business will then be left in the hands of a woman from the community. I am so excited for this experience and appreciate any and all donations to the cause. For more information about the project, check out Saha Global’s website http://sahaglobal.org/
Some more information about myself! I am a sister in the Delta Epsilon chapter of Sigma Delta Tau. I am a member of the TEDxEmory team, helping to organize one of the largest TEDx conferences in the southeast. I am active in a club called GlobeMed in which we work to educate ourselves and the Emory community about public health issues both local and global. In my free time, I enjoy crafting and baking. I love to travel and cannot wait to experience new cultures in Ghana!
