BENEFITING: Saha Global

Trevon Gordon

THE STORY:

Hello all!,

I've recently accepted a Fellowship at SAHA Global, a non-profit organization that partners with rural communities in developing countries to establish solar businesses. All of the businesses are owned and operated by members of the community in which they serve and use simple, affordable technologies to store and distribute power to communities that lack access to a source of electricity. The maintenance and operation of these solar businesses is funded by revenue from the renting out of rechargeable batteries, while the capital necessary to establish them is generated from fundraising activities.

During December and January, I will be working in Northern Ghana, as part of a team of fellows where we will be responsible for implementing a SAHA solar business in a new village. Once established, this business will provided electricity for 700-1000 people in Ghana, where 28% of the 25 million residents lack access to electricity. All solar businesses that have been implemented thus far are now consistently renting enough batteries and making enough money to not only sustain the business, but also provide a small income to the men and women who work there.

SAHA Global is effectively working to bring new sources of electricity to rural Ghana, and I am very excited to be working with them. As I mentioned earlier the capital necessary to establish these businesses is generated through fundraising and, as a fellow, I am responsible for a portion of the fundraising. The funds I raise will go directly towards the capital necessary for the solar business my teammates and I will be establishing. I would greatly appreciate your help in this endeavor,--every donation makes a difference!
