THE STORY:

As many of you know, I love to travel, and I love to find new and exciting ways to live out one of the ideals that I have been brought up with: Tikun Olam. Literally translated, this means fixing the world.

While I know that spending three weeks in Ghana will not solve all of the world's problems, I am excited to have this opportunity to have a small hand in helping out. In the three weeks that I will spend there, I will be working through a non-profit organization called Community Water Solutions (CWS) on a team of four to learn about, present, teach, and implement a water sanitation business in a Ghanian village. What I really like about this particular opportunity is that the organization strives to empower the women in the village to have and maintain a sustainable business that will have a positive effect on their whole village while providing a small income for them. When I asked about how that money was used, I was told about a family who was able to send their children to school because of the income of this business. So not only does this program have the capability of providing clean water to those who do not currently have access, it also has the potential to provide other opportunities to those who work at the business.

While the fellows are only in country for three weeks, CWS works to follow up with the villages to ensure that the businesses continue to be implemented properly. To this point, every business that has been established through this organization is still up and running, and effectively provides clean water to those communities!

This sustainable and empowering type of program can have a lasting effect on a community, and I am honored to have been chosen to be a part of this organization's efforts!

Thank you for taking the time to read my mini-rant about why I am so excited to have this opportunity! If you feel so inclined, please feel free to donate whatever you choose to help make this opportunity come to fruition, and pass this link along to anyone you feel might like to read about it as well. Every and any donation is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Sarit
