BENEFITING: Saha Global
EVENT DATE: Dec 27, 2011
This winter instead of freezing my booty off in Northern Virginia I will be working in Northern Ghana as a fellow with Community Water Solutions, a not-for-profit organization created to battle the devastating global water crisis. The goal of our project is to provide villages that have limited access to clean water sources a sustainable water treatment business. For three-weeks we will provide the tools, training, and organization to members of our assigned villages. The project looks not only to provide a clean water source but an in-village for-profit incentive to maintain the water business.
The maintenance and operation of these water treatment businesses is funded by revenue from the sale of drinking water, while the capital necessary to establish them is generated from fundraising activities. As a fellow I am responsible for conducting a portion of that fundraising.The funds I raise will go directly toward the capital necessary for the water business my teammates and I will be establishing. I would greatly appreciate your help in this endeavor- every donation makes a difference!
I couldn't be more excited to spend my winter vacation as a CWS Fellow. No donation is too small (I know how hard it is to check your bank account when you're a college student)! Thank you all for your support!
