BENEFITING: Saha Global
This upcoming winter from December 27-January 17, I will be completing a 3 week fellowship with Community Water Solutions (CWS) in Ghana.
Community Water Solutions is a not-for-profit corporation that partners with rural communities in developing countries to establish sustainable water treatment businesses.
Worldwide, 1 in 8 people do not have access to safe drinking water. In northern Ghana, where I will be going, 20% of children under five years old are sick because they do not have access to safe and clean drinking water.
The CWS model is great because it implements for-profit water businesses that are owned and operated by the communities we serve and use low-cost local technologies.
To learn more about CWS, check out:http://www.communitywatersolutions.org/index.html
There are two ways that you can help bring clean water to others around the world. First, tell others about the extreme need for clean water. The second way you can help is by donating financially to help cover the costs of the trip and the costs to set up a water treatment business.
All donations are tax deductible as CWS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
Thanks for your time,
