THE STORY:

Some people are wine connoiseurs, coffee aficionados, or home-kit craft beer brewers, but nothing gives my palette a rush like an ice cold glass of water...

In fact, I start everyday with a full glass that I get from my bathroom tap. That is as essential to my daily routine as brushing my teeth or slipping on a fresh pair of socks before I head out the door. 

But what if, like the 884 million other people around the globe, you lacked access to a clean water supply, or you had to walk several miles just to drink from a water source that has been contaminated? In Africa, people spend an estimated 40 BILLION hours per year walking to water sources. 

In May, upon graduating from Hamilton College, I will be heading to Tamale, Ghana with an organization called Community Water Solutions. There, I, along with other fellows and the CWS team, will be building a water treatment center in a village in Northern Ghana and training local women entrepeneurs to operate and run them. 

My goal is to raise $2, 950 before my departure on May 28th. The money will cover the in-country equipment expenses to build, monitor and maintain the treatment center and business. 

CWS has already made a huge impact on the global water crisis, having launched 60 sustainable water businesses and serving nearly 35,000 people in West Africa to date. I am really excited to be a part of this tremendous work!
