THE STORY:

I recently received a fellowship position for this summer with a non-profit organization called Community Water Solutions (CWS). The organization partners with rural communities in developing countries to establish sustainable water treatment businesses. These businesses are owned and operated by women in the community that they serve. They use simple, affordable technologies to enable the treatment, distribution and storage of clean, safe drinking water.  The water treatment centers are self-sustainable through the revenue from the sale of drinking water. However, I am raising the capital to help establish one this summer! 

During June and July, I will be working in Northern Ghana with three other fellows to implement a CWS water business in a new village. Once implemented this business will help provide a permanent source of safe drinking water for 700-1000 people in Ghana, where currently 900,000 of the 1.8 million residents lack access to improved water sources of drinking water. After I leave, CWS continues to monitor the business and thus far 100% of the businesses are sustainable. 

Personally, I am very excited for the opportunity to help combat the water crisis in Ghana. In addition, it is a great opportunity to help empower women through a self-sustainable business. The money that I raise will be used as the capital for the water treatment center my teammates and I will be establishing this summer. I really apprecaite any donation. Every donation makes a difference!
