BENEFITING: Saha Global
As many of you may know, I am currently studying abroad at the University of Ghana. To cap off an amazing semester, I have decided to volunteer with a nonprofit called Saha Global—an organization that works to install water and solar businesses in the rural communities of Ghana’s Northern region.
In these villages, community members must get their water from open-air dugouts full of dirty, fecally contaminated water. Saha Global works in partnership with these communities to create businesses that provide a sustainable source of clean water to entire villages.
During my three weeks of volunteering, I will help to educate women entrepreneurs, work with the community regarding water sanitation, and aid in the physical installation of a water business. I am thrilled to know that by the end of my time, there will be a self-sustaining enterprise providing clean water to a community for years to come!
Right now, I need your help to raise the money that will cover all of the start-up costs for this water business!
Here are some reasons to help me help others:
- This money covers all of the start-up costs for the water business (meaning the women entrepreneurs do not start off under a mountain of debt).
- After this initial donation the businesses are completely self-sustaining (so they are not dependent on the whims of donors).
- You will get to see how, specifically, your money is used (you know I love to take pictures).
- Saha Global has proven their model time and again (100% of the 104 businesses they have launched since their founding in 2008 are still in operation today).
- Your donation is tax-deductible!
