THE STORY:

Hello, hello! My name is Laura Logan and I am a current senior Health and Society major at Beloit College in Wisconsin. I am honored to have been selected as a Saha Global Field Representative for this upcoming June. This means I will be heading to back Ghana (woot woot) for three weeks in June, working with women in various villages within Tamale, Ghana to build sustainable solar businesses. I learned of Saha's work while I was studying abroad in Accra, Ghana for my fall semester in 2015. I instantly fell in love with the culture, food, people and scenery. I am so lucky to be able to return to Ghana and experience it in an entirely different way. I am incredibly passionate about this program because of the long lasting, positive impacts it has on people and their health. Saha is unique in the way in which they approach issues; starting on the ground. Unlike other programs that fly in with all of the answers, setting up a system and leaving, Saha works side-by-side with villagers. Saha focuses on empowering locals and educating them so that they can be self-sustaining and functioning after the Field Representatives have left. What interested me most about Saha is the emphasis they place on the value of women. In fact, all businesses established through Saha, water or solar, must be run by women nominated by their own village. This support of women and way of elevating them within their communities to positions of leadership and power is remarkable. I so appreciate the respectful, thoughtful. efficient and impactful way in which Saha conducts their work. In order for me to assist in this amazing process, I need YOU! All donations will exclusively go to not only the construction of the solar businesses: supplies, equipment , in-country travel, etc., but also to helping support the business for the next five years. "Saha" means opportunity in Dagboni, a local language spoken in Northern Ghana. Please support this incredible opportunity I have to help in providing Ghanaians with countless opportunities in the future. Thank y'all for your help and support! If you have any questions, please email me at loganl@beloit.edu You may also donate by sending a check made payable to "Saha Global" with "Laura Logan" on the memo line to the address below: Saha Global PO Box 225342 San Francisco, CA 94122-5342 Saha Global is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, so all donations are tax-deductible.
