BENEFITING: Saha Global

Sarah Richman

THE STORY:

    As a Summer 2014 Fellow with Community Water Solutions, I will be traveling to Tamale, Ghana to help build, monitor, and maintain a water treatment business. Your much-appreciated donations will be the capital that gets this initiative off the ground, providing safe drinking water for 700-1000 people. I am responsible for raising $3,000, all of which will be used to buy in-country equipment.

    CWS uses low-cost, community-scale water treatment and household safe storage solutions to make sure that water stays safe and clean while users transport it and store it in their homes. Once in place, these systems are run by two local women as a for-profit business. With your help, we can ensure community access to safe water, sustained and effective use of these resources, and lasting social change.

   If you would prefer to send a check, please write my name (Sarah Richman) in the memo and send it to:

Community Water Solutions
46 Ledgetree Rd.
Medfield, MA 02052

     The water businesses in Ghana use two products to treat water: a coagulant called alum, which removes turbidity, and chlorine, which disinfects the water. Both of these products are sold in local markets throughout the Northern Region of Ghana. Since the start of the CWS Fellowship Program in June 2010, 198 Fellows like me have provided permanent sources of safe drinking water for almost 35,000 people.

    If you have any questions about the project, feel free to email me at srichman@macalester.edu. Thank you for your support! All donations, large and small, get us closer to a healthier and safer global community.
