ABOUT SAHA GLOBAL AND THE GLOBAL LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS
Saha Global (formerly known as Community Water Solutions) empowers women in rural communities to solve their village’s need for clean water and electricity by providing business opportunities. How do we do it? Saha selects some of the world’s top young leaders to participate in this three-week program in Ghana where they are be trained to become Saha Field Representatives. Saha’s innovative Global Leadership Program fuels the implementation of new water and solar businesses in rural communities.
Saha monitors each water and solar business for 5 years after implementation. Our team visits about 20 communities each day to check-in with the women entrepreneurs to offer businesses advice and long-term training. We believe that our commitment to monitoring, combined with our use of simple and locally available technology, has been the key to our 100% sustainability rate.
To date, Saha Global has launched 71 clean water businesses and 5 solar electricity businesses, which empower 164 women entrepreneurs who serve 38,108 people. 100% of these businesses are still in operation today!!
