THE STORY:

Hello my fellow global citizens!

I am Sol from Seoul raising funds for solar power businesses in Ghana.

I have just graduated from University of Richmond with BA in Economics and International Studies. As my first step after graduation, I will be travelling to Tamale in Northern Ghana with Saha Global to participate in its 3-week Summer Fellowship to pursue my interest in international development. I will be partnering with female entrepreneurs to build sustainable solar power businesses which provide locally-driven solutions to communities that lack access to electricity.

How will your donation help?

Your generous donation does not go towards my flights! Every dollar you entrust with me will go towards building solar charging centers as well as monitoring for the next 5 years, not only providing light to the communities that lack access to electricity but also empowering female entrepreneurs through such business opportunities.

Moreover, your donation will help me learn about female entrepreneurs and to get hands-on experience in international development.

Approximately 1.3 billion people, over 18% of the world's population, live without electricity. But what does that really mean? With your help, I will be given a special opportunity to explore beyond the numerical data and to teach a man how to fish instead of giving him the fish.

Thank you all for your help in being part of solar power businesses to provide electricity and empower female entrepreneurs in Ghana. If you have any additional questions about my time in Ghana, Saha Global or anything at all, please email me at sol.park@richmond.edu.
