THE STORY:

 

Hi friends and family!

I have recently been selected as a Field Representative with Saha Global to travel to Northern Ghana this summer for three weeks. I will be partnering with women in rural communities to build sustainable clean water businesses. Did you know that 40% of the population in Northern Ghana lacks access to clean drinking water and are currently drinking fecally contaminated water?

Saha Global empowers women in these rural communities to solve their village’s need for clean water by providing business opportunities. These women are trained in the ways of water treatment (this is where I come in) so that they can sell the decontaminated water in their communities, providing clean water for up to 1000 people!

Why donate?

To date, Saha Global has launched 84 clean water businesses, 100% of which are still in operation and are run completely by the local women entrepreneurs. The entirety of your generous donation will go towards supplying in-country treatment equipment to build, monitor, and maintain this drinking water system and provide the women of the village the initial infrastructure to run a profitable water purification business.

I am thrilled to have this opportunity to travel to Ghana and work with the women to implement these social enterprises, following my passion for sustainable international development. Every single dollar really does help further the goal of providing essential clean water in these communities. If you have any questions at all, please reach out to me at lauren.m.barnett@vanderbilt.edu

***Crowdrise does take a small percentage of each donation, so if you’d rather mail a check (memo: Lauren Barnett), please send to
