THE STORY:

Hi Everyone!

I have the privilege to say that I have been accepted as a Field Rep for Saha Global! So what does this all mean? Well, during my winter break, I will be traveling to Ghana for 3 weeks and aiding entrepreneurial women establish and start their own water purification business.

 

In Northern Ghana, half of the population lacks access to clean water; and with the help of Saha Global, entrepreneurial women can start their own purification businesses. As a result, the local community benefits: families are able to access clean water, between 700-1000 people are reached, and all the profits the business makes, stays within the local village entrepreneurs. The success rate of Saha Global is 100%. Ever since 2008, they have helped create over 100 water and solar businesses that are still operating and running solely by local entrepreneurs from the community.

 

So why am I asking for donations? Unfortunately, as a broke college student, I alone, do not have the necessary funds to get myself to Ghana and participate in this amazing program. As a business student, interested in startups and social businesses, this is what I want to do with my future. Participating in Saha Global and getting to go to Ghana will give me an opportunity to dip my toes in my professional field. I am asking for your help in contributing whatever you can. Every dime I am able to fundraise will go directly to starting up one of these water purification businesses. I am so thankful to have such encouraging friends and family around me to support me in my endeavors.

 

If you have any question, feel free to email me or find me on Facebook.

Thank you to everyone!

 

Love,

Zulean
