Kevonté Seventy-Seven X

THE STORY:

II.

 

Lit to announce that this summer eYe have a Fellowship to travel to West Afreeka with as participant in the SAHA Global Leadership Program outside of Tamale, Ghana. eYe will be partnering with local women to construct a solar panel charging station system in a village currently trekking long distance to service electronics and they also use kerosene to fuel lamps. eYe will also be learning from and training with these women on how to maintain and operate the solar power equipment using local products so they can maintain a profitable social enterprise. Check out the video on the link if you're interested in learning more!

Why Donate?

eYe really need your help! In order to cover the costs of the water purification system, 
eYe need to raise at least $3,000 by May 26th! Every single dollar will go directly towards empowering women, developing renewable energy solutions, and encouraging entrepreneurship in rural villages in Northern Ghana. If you would like to donate, you can do so using this website (although it will charge a small transaction fee) or send a check to Saha Global with my name in the memo. All donations are tax deductable!

To date, Saha Global has launched 74 clean water businesses and 8 solar electricity businesses, which empower 178 women entrepreneurs who serve 39,534 people. 100% of these businesses are still in operation today.

If you have any questions, please reach out! Thank you for your time, consideration, and - hopefully - your support!

I.


I am a Senior Africana Studies Major at Bowdoin College raising funds for a Three Week Summer Fellowship Program with nonprofit, Saha Global. I will travel to a village in Tamale, Ghana in July to set up solar electricity businesses with the women there.

Let's raise funds to kickstart solar business in Ghana. We will purchase solar panels to bring electricity to rural villages in Northern Ghana Region. As a Field Representative for Saha Global, my mission is to build a charging center in a community that lacks access to electricity. My team and I will train community-appointed women to build and run this solar-powered charging center to meet this need.

This is important to me because Ghana is close to my heart. As far back as I can remember, I have had a dream to go to Africa and reconnect with my heritage and ancestral motherland. In 2013, I studied abroad at the University of Ghana-Legon in Accra and it truly was a life-changing experience. Now I have the opportunity to go back to Ghana, this time to the rural north rather than the metropolitan south. This time my purpose is for entrepreneurial economic development rather than academic educational expansion. Our people suffer from a lack of access to resources and capital, but this is more than just a charity donation. This is an entirely developed process of operation.

The money you donate will purchase solar panels and rechargeable lamps and lanterns, which will replace the expensive and hazardous kerosene lamps. 100-Watts solar panels connecting to a charge controller, 1200 Watt battery and 600 Watt inverter, and the lanterns will go to each household. Once the solar charging center is in place, the business is owned and operated by the women business owners.

We will empower each other to as collaborative Saha Global solar entrepreneurs. Saha Global solar entrepreneurs use solar panels to provide access to electricity to their community. They then rent rechargeable batteries, which power household lanterns and small electronics. Community members can also pay a small fee to charge other items, such as cell phones. All of the equipment needed to build the solar charging centers, is purchased locally from our current partner, Burro, a social business located in Koforidua, Ghana.

 

$2,950 is for the program fee and purchasing the solar panel equipment.

$1,000 for airfair
$1,000 for film equipment
$1,000 for travel, room & board
