My name is Hailey Seo and I'm a student at USC studying Social Entrepreneurship.
Luckily, I've been given the chance to go to Ghana this winter to participate in SAHA Global Leadership Program at Accra, Ghana. I will be partnering with local women to install a water purification system in a village currently lacking access to clean water. I really need your help!
The Problem: In Ghana half of the population does not have access to clean water. As a result 20% of children under five in northern Ghana are suffering from diarrheal disease. This problem is prevalent in Africa where approximately 700,000 people die each year from preventable waterborne diseases.
The Solution: SAHA Global, a non-profit, creates sustainable water treatment centers. For 3 weeks I will be working in a village and facilitating the women of the village in setting up, implementing and successfully running a water purification business. As a fellow I’m expected to help mobilize capital needed to develop the new water treatment center. The amonut of cpital neeeded is $2950
How will your donation help?: 100% of your generous donation will go towards in-country equipment to build, monitor and maintain this drinking water system and provide the females of the village the initial infrastructure to run a profitable water purification business. Once established, the business will provide a permanent source of safe drinking water for 700-1000 people.
Please support me!
